    The perimeter P of a rectangle, P=2(L+W) L=length, W=width

    A Chain will surround the lot, which measurement would be use to measure PERIMETER OR AREA . The Pavement would be paved which is used to measure Perimeter or AREA ?

    HintL: The chain-link fence is measured in linear feet, paving (area) is measured in square feet.

    Not exactly, perimeter is measured in linear measurements , like feet, yards, or metres. So 302 yards would be correct.

    The chain would be perimeter and the pave would be area

    302 would be the perimeter

    linear measurements are simple measurements. For example, area of a rectangle 2 ft by 3 ft would be Area=2 ft * 3 ft = 2*3 ft*ft = 6 ft^2. That's how we get the unit for area.

    Please, perimeters and areas MUST be accompanied by units.

    So For measuring the chain we will use perimeter and For the pave we will use the area ?

    Yes, the chain has only one dimension, so linear yard. The paving has two dimensions (length & width), so area.

    yes it should be, remember 82 yd * 69 yd = 82*69 yd*yd = 5658 yd^2
