Draw a figure that is made of rectangles and has a perimeter of feet. Then show how to find its area.  

Remember that the perimeter is the distance around a shape and the area is the space within the shape.

An enclosed figure: Starting at the upper left corner: right 19, down 9.5, left 9.5, up 9.5, right 9.5, down 28.5, left 38, up 28.5 to enclose the figure.
