A flower bed measuring 8 feet by 10 feet is bordered by a concrete walk that is 2 feet wide. what is the area of JUST the concrete walk in square feet. . It will probably help to draw a picture of this. Lets divide the concrete walk into four pieces, and figure our their dimensions. There are many ways to divide the walkway; I'll explain one way here. The important thing is to make sure you don't count any part of the walkway more than once. . Since we have a 8-foot by 10-foot flower bed, we can divide the walkway to four sections, TOP: 2-feet wide by 8-feet long . BOTTOM: 2-feet long by 8-feet long . LEFT: 2 feet wide by 6-feet long (we already counted part of the left side in the top and bottom measurements.) . RIGHT: 2-feet by 6-feet long (we already counted some of the right side too.) . So the area of the walkway is . . The area is 56 square inches. . Hope this helps. Feel free to email me if you still have questions about this, . Ms.Figgy math.in.the.votex@gmail.com
