Question

# A farmer had a rectangular plot measuring 500 m by 100 m. If he fences the plot 4 times with barbed wire, what length of wire was used?

## The correct answer is: Final Answer:- ∴ 4,800 m long wire would be used to fence the given plot 4 times.

### Hint:-

i. Fencing refers to blocking or covering the boundaries of a land with fences i.e. wooden blocks/ wires to prevent livestock from getting away.

ii. Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)

Step-by-step solution:-

For the given rectanglular plot, we are given that length = 500 m, breadth = 100 m

We need to find the length of wire used for fencing the plot 4 times.

Since fences are put on the boundaries of the plot, we need to calculate the perimeter of the plot to find the length of wire used.

∴ Perimeter of the given plot = 2 (length + breadth)

∴ Perimeter of the given plot = 2 (500 + 100)

∴ Perimeter of the given plot = 2 × 600

∴ Perimeter of the given plot = 1,200 m.

∴ length of wire used to fence the given plot 4 times = 1,200 m × 4

∴ length of wire used to fence the given plot 4 times = 4,800 m

Final Answer:-

∴ 4,800 m long wire would be used to fence the given plot 4 times.
