Decorative fence

The rectangular garden is 57 m long and 42 m wide. Calculate how much m² it will reduce if it encloses with a 60 cm wide decorative fence.

Correct result:

S =  117.36 m2

Solution:

a=57 m b=42 m p=60 cmm=60/100 m=0.6 m  S1=a b=57 42=2394 m2 S2=(a2 p) (b2 p)=(572 0.6) (422 0.6)=5691625=2276.64 m2  S=S1S2=23942276.64=293425=117.36 m2a=57 \ \text{m} \ \\ b=42 \ \text{m} \ \\ p=60 \ cm \rightarrow m=60 / 100 \ m=0.6 \ m \ \\ \ \\ S_{1}=a \cdot \ b=57 \cdot \ 42=2394 \ \text{m}^2 \ \\ S_{2}=(a-2 \cdot \ p) \cdot \ (b-2 \cdot \ p)=(57-2 \cdot \ 0.6) \cdot \ (42-2 \cdot \ 0.6)=\dfrac{ 56916 }{ 25 }=2276.64 \ \text{m}^2 \ \\ \ \\ S=S_{1}-S_{2}=2394-2276.64=\dfrac{ 2934 }{ 25 }=117.36 \ \text{m}^2
