Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Length = X ft

Width = 5 ft

Perimeter = 2(x+5) ft = 2x+10

But the cost of fencing the whole plot is $238 while the cost per feet is $14. This means that the total ft to be fenced is

= $238/$14 = 17 feet

This implies that 2x+10=17

And 2x =7 thus x =3.5 ft



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
