 Question 2799: A square barn measures 42 ft on each side. A goat is tethered outside by a rope that is attached to the "outside" of one corner of the barn. A) Suppose that the length of the rope is 28 ft. On how many square feet of land is the goat able to graze? Answer by kiru_khandelwal(79)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since the goat is tied to the corner of the square barn....goat will be able to graze a Three quarters of the circle with radius 28 ft outside the barn. so square feet of land grazed will be 3/4(pi*r*r) = 3/4(22/7)(28*28) => 616*3 sq ft=1848 sq ft.
