# After 2

After we planted flowers in 2/5 of our garden, 24m remained unplanted. How many meters is the garden in total? If the total area of the garden is 1, the proportion of the remaining area is?

Result

a =  40 m
b =  0.6

#### Solution:

$\ \\ 2/5a + 24 = a \ \\ \ \\ 3a = 120 \ \\ \ \\ a = 40 \ \\ = 40 \ \text { m }$
$b = 1 - 2/5 = \dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } = 0.6$
