| **The length of the rectangular site is 24 m. The width of the site is five-sixths of its length. What is the length of the fence around this site?**

1. By the condition of the problem, the width of the rectangular area is 5/6 of its length. Find out how many meters is the width of a rectangular area if the length is 24 meters.

24 * 5/6 = 120/6 = 20 m.

2. Since the fence is located around the site, therefore, its length will be equal to the perimeter of this site. Let’s calculate the perimeter of a rectangular area. To do this, add up the length of all its sides.

24 + 24 + 20 + 20 = 88 m.

Answer: The length of the fence around a given rectangular area is 88 meters.
