Orchard

Route passes trapezoidal orchard perpendicular to the parallel sides. It is 80 cm wide. The lengths of the bases are in the ratio 5:3 and the length of the longer base to the length of the path is in the ratio 5:6. How many square meters occupies the route if the entire acreage is 5400 square meters?

Result

S =  72 m2
