144 steps

To get around the garden, we have to take 144 steps—eight steps less in width than in length. One step is five decimetres long. What are the dimensions of the garden? What are its perimeter and its area?

Correct answer:

a =  20 m
b =  16 m
o =  72 m
S =  320 m2

Step-by-step explanation:

k=5 dm m=5:10  m=0.5 m o=144 k=144 0.5=72 m  2 (a+b)=o a=b+8 k 2 (a+b)=72 a=b+8 0.5  2a+2b=72 ab=4  Row221 Row1Row2 2a+2b=72 2b=32  b=232=16 a=2722b=2722 16=20  a=20 b=16
S=a b=20 16=320 m2
