Perimeter & Area Challenge


A man is constructing a vegetable garden in an area shown in the picture below.

He needs to build a fence, which will cost $20 per metre and cover the ground with soil, which will cost $15 per square metre.

Work out the perimeter and area to discover how much money it will cost to set up the garden.

Some measurements are missing, so you will need to work out what they are before solving the perimeter and area.
