The yard is 12.5 yeards long by 5.5 yards wide.  If we are going to fence the yard, then we will be dealing with the perimeter.
 
Perimeter = 2L + 2W
Perimeter = 2(12.5) + 2(5.5)
P = 25yards + 11yards = 36 yards total.
 
Hope this helps

Hi Darla;
How many feet to fence in yard if 12.5 yards long and 5.5 yards wide
 
[2(l+w)][(3 feet)/(1 yard)]
[2(12.5 yards + 5.5 yards)][(3 feet)/(1 yard)]
[2(18 yards)][(3 feet)/(1 yard)]
The unit of yard(s) is in the numerator and denominator.  These cancel...
[2(18 yards)][(3 feet)/(1 yard)]
[2(18)][(3 feet)/(1)]
The only unit remaining is feet.  This is what we want...
(36)(3 feet)
108 feet
