Lucy is building a fence for her pigpen so that the pigs cannot escape. The area of the rectangular pigpen is 96 sq ft. The length of the pigpen measures 12 ft. What is the width in feet?


The formula for the area of a rectangle is:
Area = Length * Width
96 square feet = 12 x Width
Width = 96/12 = 8
