The kingston parks and recreation dept. is planning a new that will be 100 yards long and 85 yards wide. The dept. recommended that the trees be planted along the perimeter of the park at equal distances from each other and as far apart as possible. How far apart can the trees be planted?

How many trees?

thats what I was wondering

That's what I was wondering too? I guess they could be as far apart as desired???

Me too???

370 feet away


if we knew the amount of tree we need to plant, then we could have distributed evenly and the distance between them is where the tree can be planted.

okay...That is all the information I was given. I think it is a trick question.

Thank you.

The trees must be as far apart as possible.
The largest number that will evenly divide 85 and 100, permitting equal spacing of the tree around the entire perimeter is 5.
Thus, the spaciing is 5 ft.

The only thing in your problem statement that bothers me is "at equal distances from each other". If, by chance you really mean that each tree is to be the same distance from every other tree around the oerimeter, I believe it is impossible.

Equal, and maximum, spacing from each tree on eitherside of every tree makes more sense.



since it says trees (plural), plant 2
