1. since the 4-yd path is on both sides and both ends,
(300 + 8)(500 + 8) - 300*500 = ? yd^2

unless the path is 4 feet wide, in which case you need to change it some.

4. Oops. I added the path to the dimensions; I should have subtracted. The green area is inside the path.

(300 - 8)(500 - 8) = 143664 yd^2
