It seems as though both sides of the walkway have to be enclosed by fencing.

Therefore you need the perimeter of two rectangles:

Inner rectangle has the same dimensions as the garden.

To enclose the walkway on both sides:

To find the amount of fencing needed to surround the walkway around the garden, you first need to determine the dimensions of the area that includes the garden and the walkway.

Given:

- The garden is 5 feet by 6 feet.
- The walkway around the garden is 2 feet wide.

To find the dimensions of the area including the walkway, add twice the width of the walkway to both the length and width of the garden:

Length including walkway = length of garden + 2 * width of walkway Width including walkway = width of garden + 2 * width of walkway

Substituting the given values: Length including walkway = 6 feet + 2 * 2 feet = 6 feet + 4 feet = 10 feet Width including walkway = 5 feet + 2 * 2 feet = 5 feet + 4 feet = 9 feet

Now, you can find the amount of fencing needed to surround the walkway by calculating the perimeter of the area including the walkway:

Perimeter = 2 * (length including walkway + width including walkway)

Substituting the calculated values: Perimeter = 2 * (10 feet + 9 feet) = 2 * (19 feet) = 38 feet

So, the amount of fencing needed to surround the walkway around the garden is 38 feet.
