Answer:He should buy lights that are 2088 inches long

Step-by-step explanation:Craig has a rectangle wooden deck that measures 799 inches by 245 inches.

Let us say the length, L, is 799 inches and the breadth, B, is 245 inches.He wants to put a string of lights around the deck.

This means that

he needs to buy the length of lights that would be equal to the perimeter of the rectangular deck.The perimeter of a rectangle is given as:

P = 2(L + B)

Hence,

the length of lights he should buyis:P = 2(799 + 245) = 2(1044)

P = 2088 inches

He should buy lights that are 2088 inches long.
