A rectangular backyard measures 15 meters by 20 meters.there is a square flower bed in the middle of the yard with three sides of 3 meters.what is the area of the yard only?
since the center bed is a square, I will assume that in fact all four sides are 3m. So, subtract the areas to get
15*20 - 3^2 = 291 m^2
