    381 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    width = 126

    since the length is 3 feet more than thrice we will apply multiplication and addition

    thrice it's width meaning 3 times longer

    126 x 3 = 378

    three feet more which of course means plus three

    378 + 3 = 381

    3600.

      6: 5   is equal to 2,200.
    divide the total number of freshmen and sophomore students, which is 2,200 to 11, the sum of the ratio 6 and 5 (6+5=11)

    the answer to that is 200. 200 is equivalent to 1 in the ratio. so to get the freshmen students whose ratio is 6, you need to multiply 200 to 6 because, as what i've said earlier that 200 is equal to 1. (what will you multiply to 1 to get 6, 6 right? ) answer: 200*6= 1200

    after that, you also need to get the sophomore students. you just need to multiply 200 by 5. answer: 200*5= 1000

    check: 6: 5 ; 1200: 1000 = 2,200 (1200+1000=2,200)

    then by getting the other numbers are quite easy since the ratio overall is, 6: 5: 4: 3

    all you have to do is to multiply 200 by 4 and 3. 
    200*4=800
    200*3=600

    lastly, add all 4 numbers.
    1200+1000+800+600= 3600

    and you get 3600.
