Best answer

Length of rectangular park = 125 m, breadth of rectangular park = 65 m and width of the path = 3 m Length of rectangular park with path

= 125 + 3 + 3 = 131 m

Breadth of rectangular park with path

= 65 + 3 + 3 = 71 m

Therefore Area of path

= Area of park with path – Area of park without path

= (AB x AD) – (EF x EH)

= (131 x 71) – (125 x 65)

= 9301 – 8125

= 1,176 m2

Thus, area of path around the park is 1,176 m2.
