Molly is raising cows. She has a pasture for them that is 0.65 square miles in area. One dimension of the pasture is 0.4 miles long. Homework Help ✎
What is the length of the other side of the pasture?
How much fencing will she need to go around the pasture?
Draw a diagram to help you visualize the problem.
Remember the formula to find area:
Area = base · height
Substitute the values into the equation and solve for the missing variable.
0.65 mi2 = (base)(0.4 mi)
The other side of the pasture is 1.625 miles long.
Now that you know the lengths of all 4 sides of the pasture, find the perimeter.
