John's father has a garden in the back yard. The dimensions of the garden are shown here.

A green rectangle is shown. The width is labeled as 2 and two-thirds feet. The length is labeled as 7 and three-fourths feet.

Calculate the area of the garden.

You found the area of the garden. Explain briefly, without doing any calculations, how you would find 5/6 of this area.

Correct answer:

S =  20 23 = 62/3 ft2
S2 =  17 29 = 155/9 ft2

Step-by-step explanation:

a=232=2+32=32 3+2=382.6667 ft b=743=7+43=47 4+3=431=7.75 ft  S=a b=2.6667 7.75=362 ft2=2032 ft2=20.6667 ft2
S2=65 S=65 20.6667=9155 ft2=17.2222 ft2
