Question

You are fencing a rectangular puppy kennel with 25 ft of fence. The side of the kennel against your house does not need a fence. This side is 9 ft long. Find the dimensions of the kennel.

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2We are given that one side is 9 ft long (along the side of the house). Let $x$ be the other dimemsion so that the perimeter, considering only three sides is:

$P=x+x+9$

Given that $P=25$ ft, the amount of fencing you have, then:

$25=x+x+9$

$25=2x+9$

$16=2x$

$8=x$

So, the dimensions of the puppy kennel are:

$\color{#c34632}\text{9 ft by 8 ft}$
