Mohammed grew a garden last year. His plot of land was 6 3/4 feet by 10 feet. He wants to have twice as much area and his garden this year. How much area will the new garden take up?

Correct answer:

S2 =  135 ft2
x =  9.5459 ft
y =  14.1421 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

a=634=6+34=6 4+34=274=6.75 ft b=10 ft k=2  S1=a b=6.75 10=1352=67.5 ft2 S2=k S1=2 67.5=135 ft2
x=k a=2 6.75=9.5459 ft
y=k b=2 10=10 214.1421 ft   Verifying Solution:  S3=x y=9.5459 14.1421=135 ft2
