Math: You have been put in charge of planning the construction of a new rifle range. It needs to be wide enough for 16 shooters, and each shooter needs 5 yards of space. The length of the range needs to have 200 yards of open space, with 10 yards for a backstop. Find the width, length, and area of the range. Then, find the perimeter required to put a fence around it.
