From the given data we get to know that
Length of the park (L) = 125 m
Breadth of the park (B) = 65 m
We have to determine the area of the path.
Area of the park = length × breadth
= 125 × 65
= 8125 m2
From the figure,
The new length and breadth of the park when the path is included is 131 m and 71 m respectively.
A new area of the park = 131 × 71
= 9301 m2
The area of path = New area of the park including path – Area of the park
= 9301 – 8125
= 1176 m2
Are of the path=1176 m2
