Tyra wants to enclose a section of her lawn
for her dog to be able to have an outdoor
play area. She knows that if she uses the side
of her house as one side of the play area, her
dog will have a larger outdoor play area.
Tyra’s plan for the play area includes the
following:
• It will be in the shape of a rectangle.
• The side of the house will be used as one
side of
• the rectangular area.
• She will use exactly 24 feet of fence
material to
• enclose the play area.
• The length and width of the enclosure will
be whole units.
• She wants the play area to be greater
than 60 square feet.
Use the Connect Line tool to create a
rectangular play area that meets Tyra’s plan.
