The garden around the new farm is divided as follows: 35% vegetable, 30% fruit orchards, 10% flowers and the remaining 120 m2 are lawns. What is the total area of the garden?

Correct answer:

x =  480 m2

Step-by-step explanation:

0.35x + 0.30 x + 0.10 x + 120 = x

0.35•x + 0.30•x + 0.10•x + 120 = x

0.25x = 120

x = 480
