    A farmer builds a fence to enclose a rectangular pasture. He uses 155 feet of fence. Find the total area of the pasture if it is 45,5 feet long

    To build a fence is perimeter so 45,5 x 2=91 155 — 91=64Since that is still two sides you divide 64 by 2 and get 32. Then area is l x w so 32 x 45,5=1456
