A garden will be made up of a parallelogram, a rectangle and a triangle. The garden must have
an area of 500m2. Draw two possible gardens. Determine the dimensions of each part of the
garden, and justify your choice of these dimensions.

    a rectangle 10x10
    a right triangle with legs 20 and 20
    a parallelogram with base 20 and height 10

    area: 100+200+200

    I'm sure you can come up with other scenarios.

    Rectangle
    Measurement:
    Length = 20m
    Width = 20m
    Area = 200m2

    An isosceles triangle
    Measurement:
    Base = 25m
    Height = 16m
    Area = 200m2

    Parallelogram
    Measurement:
    Base: 25m
    Height: 4m
    Area = 100m2

    Total Area = 200m2 + 200m2 + 100m2 = 500m2.

    Oh, so all we need to do is make combinations, so that all the area adds up to 500m2. Thank you Steve and Aryan!

    Yes, thank you!

    Yes, no problem at all. Your very welcome, and thank you!
