Apark is in the shape of a rectangle. the park authorities are planning to build a 2-meter-wide jogging path in the park (shown as the shaded region in the image). what is the area of the jogging path? plz

Answers

The answer is: 624 square meters
First, we need to find the area of the two rectangles in this picture. We know that area = l*w.

So for the larger rectangle, we know the l = 100 m, and the w = 60 m. Let us find the area:

A=100*60=6000 m^{2}

So the larger rectangle area is 6000 m.

The smaller rectangle has dimensions that are 2 m less on every side. So we can recalculate these dimensions as l = 96 m and w = 56 m.

Let's find the area of the smaller rectangle:

A=96*56=5,376 m^{2}

So we know that the area of the smaller rectangle is 5,376 m.

The area of the jogging path is going to be the difference between these two rectangles. Let us solve:

6,000-5,376=624 m^{2}

So now we know that the area of the jogging path is 624 m^{2} .

Option A is the correct answer.

Step-by-step explanation:

Width of jogging path = 2 m

From figure we can see two rectangles, one with dimension 100m x 60m and other with  dimension (100-4)m x (60-4)m

Area of jogging path = Area of rectangle with dimension 100m x 60m - Area of rectangle with dimension 96m x 56m

Area of jogging path = 6000 - 5376 = 624 square meters

Option A is the correct answer.
