there is a path 7 meter wide outside around the square playground of side 60 meter each. find the area of the path...........?

  • Math - ,

    area = length * width

    area of playground + area of path = total area

    area of path = total area - area of playground


    The path has the same dimensions on each side because it surrounds a square. Thus, 7 meters is added onto each side of the square playground, and the total of each side becomes 67m.

    Find the total area:

    67m * 67m = 4489m2

    Area of the square playground:

    60m * 60m = 3600m2

    4489m2 - 36002 = 889m2
