Area = 1/2bh ( b = base = width )

6 ft^2 = 1/2[b(4ft)]

multiply through by 2

12 = 4b

b = 3 feet

Hello! Good answer from John McCann, I agree with his calculations. As I understood, you want to build dog house for your dog. What breed do you have? Also I want to ask how do you feed your pet? It is quite important question and a lot of people don't pay necessary attention on this. I recommend to research articles about this on site, it is special blog about dog food!
