It takes 184 rods of fencing to enclose a rectangular field containing 13 acres. Find the dimensions of the field. (1 acre = 160 sq. rods). I multiiplied 160 x 13 and got 2,080 sq. rods. It seems that therre is more field than fencing to cover it. ( I noticed it said 184 rods instead of square rods.)
