Now write out a table...

Dimensions of Rectangle...................Area

25x45...........................................11 25

23x43...........................................98 9

21x41...........................................86 1

19x39...........................................74 1

17x37...........................................62 9

15x35...........................................52 5

So he will go around a bit less than 5 times.
