Entire Park dimensions: Let width be x meters ; Length is "x+5" meters: Area = x(x+5) meters^2 --------------------- Inner lawn dimensions: width = x-5 meters : length = x+5-5 = x meters: Area = x(x-5) meters^2 ------------------------- EQUATION: Entire Park Area - Lawn Area = 330m^2 x(x+5) - x(x-5) = 330 5x+5x = 330 10x = 330 x = 33 meters ---------------------- Area of lawn = x(x-5) = 33*28 = 924 m^2 ======================================= Cheers, Stan H.
