Solution

## The correct option is B 3600 cm2 The area of each grass bed = 10 cm × 15 cm = 150 cm2 Number of grass beds that were bought = 28 Number of grass beds Ted used = 28-4 = 24 grass beds (Since 4 beds were left unused) Thus, the area of the lawn = 24 × area of each grass bed = 24 × 150 = 3600 cm2
