For a)

you have 120 m of fencing. you divided that by the 4 sides you have to enclose. This gives you 30m. to find the area you multiply length x heights so 30m x 30m = 900 square meters.

120/4=30 30x30=900

for b)

you have the same amount of fencing but only 3 sides, so in this case you take 120/3= 40.

40 m x40 m=1600 square meters
