    That's 18 feet right and not yards

    |dw:1440085584163:dw| we just need to use the area of a rectangle which is length x width. All you really have to do here is convert 18 feet into yards. 1 yard = 3 feet

    Ah the perimeter is 32 yards, correct, but we want area here :)

    Yup, 60 square yards, remember when we multiply the dimensions the units are being multiplied to
