Solution

## The correct option is B 3600 sqcm Area of a rectangle = length x breadth The area of each grass bed = 10 cm×15 cm=150 cm2 Number of grass beds that were bought = 28 4 beds were unused. Therefore, Ted used 28-4 = 24 grass beds Thus area of the lawn = 24×area of each grass bed=24×150=3600 cm2
