Perimeter = 4 ×side
so , side = 208/4 = 52 m
outside side length = 52+4 = 56
so perimeter = 56×4 =224 m
cost = 224×12.5 = Rs 2800
1 5 1
208x12.5=Rs2,600 is the total cost
0 0 0
this is the answer excluding the width
plz correct ur answer
if width is included, then 208+(4x2)=216 metres and the cost will be 216x12.5=2700
