Question:

Jonathan mowed around the perimeter of the football field. The field was 360 feet long by 150 feet wide. If Jonathan mowed two laps around the field, how many feet did he mow?

A 2,040 feet
Explaination

Start by finding the perimeter of the field: P = 2L + 2W Insert the values and solve for P. P = 2(360) + 2(150) P = 720 + 300 P = 1,020 Next, multiply the number of laps by the perimeter of the field: 2 × 1,020 = 2,040 feet
