I should be able to do this here problem by now quite easily, I find myself struggling with the solution, though.

If fencing is $ 4.00 per yard, how much will it cost a farmer to fence a rectangular field with dimension 300 ft by 600 ft.

**Given**

fencing is $.00 per yard

width 300 ft

length 600 ft

cost of fencing=?

This is definitely about founding the area of the rectangular field.

Area of a rectangular= l*w

A= 600 ft * 300 ft

A=180,000 ft^2 (the area of the rectangular field)

Now, it says that the cost of 1 yard =4.00 dollars

so, there are three feet to a yard

so, 3 ft of fencing costs =4 dollars

the area has 180,000 ft

I am stuck here, any hint as to how to proceed to find the cost?

Thanks in advance,
