# Spencer wants to plant strawberries for his garden. To do this, he has to increase the garden and the fence around it. Spencer decides one side can be twice as big and the other side four times as big. One side measures 7feet long and the other side is 5 feet long.

What is the square feet of the garden and how many feet of fencing will have to go around the garden.

Double digit numbers are not to be used

## 7*5=35

2*4*35 = 280 (new area)

2(7*4+5*2) = 76 (new perimeter)

2(7*2+5*4) = 68 (new perimeter)

You don't say which side is 2x and which is 4x larger

No idea how to work this without double-digit numbers

## To find the square footage of the garden, you need to multiply the length and width together. The length of one side is 7 feet, and the other side is 5 feet. However, Spencer wants to double one side and quadruple the other side.

To find the new length and width, we double 7 and quadruple 5.

Doubling 7 gives us 7 x 2 = 14 feet.

Quadrupling 5 gives us 5 x 4 = 20 feet.

So, the new length is 14 feet, and the new width is 20 feet.

To find the square footage, you multiply the length and width together: 14 x 20 = 280 square feet.

Now, let's calculate the total amount of fencing required. The fence goes around the perimeter of the garden, which means you need to add up all the sides' lengths.

Since Spencer doubled one side, the new length of that side is 14 feet. The length of the other side remains the same at 5 feet. We need to calculate the other two sides by doubling and quadrupling.

Doubling 5 gives us 5 x 2 = 10 feet.

Quadrupling 7 gives us 7 x 4 = 28 feet.

So, the four sides of the garden will measure 14 feet, 10 feet, 20 feet, and 28 feet.

To find the total amount of fencing required, you add up these four sides: 14 + 10 + 20 + 28 = 72 feet.

Therefore, the square footage of the garden is 280 square feet, and the total feet of fencing required is 72 feet.
