**Perimeter**

The *perimeter* of a figure is the total distance around the edge
of the figure. For example, a square whose sides are 6 inches long has
a perimeter of 6 x 4 = 24 inches because it has 4 sides 6 inches long.
A rectangle whose length and width are 4 meters and 3 meters has a
perimeter of 4 + 4 + 3 + 3 = 14 meters.

Now, can you tell me what
the perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 8 feet and whose width is 3 feet is?
