The
Process
This is the process you and your partner
will need to go through. Remember, Mrs. Price wants a final design
of her backyard along with the cost of the fencing so Mr. Price can begin
building the fence.
Here is your process:
Print off the landscape
design of Mrs. Price's backyard. (You only get ,
so might want to use graph paper to do practice work!) Once you have
the landscape design printed, figure with your partner the greatest area
for the puppy but with the smallest perimeter. (Mrs. and Mr. Price
don't want to spend too much money on a fence!) Your fence does not
need to go to the edge of the yard but the area for the puppy needs to
be at least 220 square feet but no larger than 270 square feet. Be
sure to work around the tree, flowers and bushes in Mrs. Price's yard. 
After the area is done, figure the perimeter
so Mr. Price can buy the fencing. 
Next you will need to figure the cost of
the fencing per foot. Go to the following fencing store sites to
figure the cost of the fencing. Since you want to tell Mr. Price
which store he should go to for the cheapest
fencing, you will need to visit all the sites.

Then write a two paragraph friendly letter
to Mrs. Price. Be sure to use the correct letter format with transition
words.
1. In the first paragraph explain
how you found the best area and perimeter for the fence. (You could
explain to Mrs. Price what didn't work and then what you had to do to find
what worked best.)
2. The second paragraph should include
the steps you took to find the cost of the fencing. 
Finally, you will present the landscape
design and letter to Mrs. Price when our project is done.
