A rectangular grassy plot is 112 m by 78 m. It has a gravel path 2.5 m m wide all around it on the inside.Find the area of the path ?

A. 952 m²

B. 925 m²

C. 912 m²

D. 950 m²

**Answer : **B. 925 m²

## Explanation:

Outer length of the grassy plot = 112 m

Outer breadth of the plot = 78 m

Outer area of the plot = 112 x 78

= 8736 sq m

Width of the path = 2.5 m

Inner length of the plot = 112 - (2 x 2.5)

= 107 m

Inner breadth of the plot = 78 - (2 x 2.5)

= 73 m

Inner area of the plot = 107 x 73

= 7811 sq m

Area of the path = Outer area of the plot - inner area of the plot

= 8736 - 7811

**= 925 m²**
