A rectangular garden 50 m long and 34 m wide is surrounded by a uniform dirt road. Find the width of the road if the total area of the garden and road is 540 m^2. Explain your solution

  • Mathematics -

    Garden:

    A = LW
    A = 50 * 34
    A = 1,700 sq. m

    Since that is much larger than the total, your problem seems to have an error. Please check and repost.
