A rose garden is formed by joining a rectangel and a semicircle. The rectangle is 35 ft long and 35 ft wide. if the gardner wants to build a fence around the gardner, how many feet of fence are required?

Three sides of the rectangle (a square) will be fenced = 3*35 = 105ft

The semi-circle will have a radius of (35/2) =17.5 ft

And the additional fencing required = (1/2) the perimeter of the circle = pi (17.5) = 17.5 pi ft

So.....the total fencing required = 105 + 17.5 pi ≈ 160 ft
