Question Njoki planted trees at intervals of 22m apart on the diagonal of a rectangular plot of land that measures 48m by 20m . How many trees did he plant

Answer: The number of tree is 2 Explanation: the diagonal of the rectangular plot of land can be found using Pythagoras theorem (the diagonal is the hypotenuse) Given length of land x= 48m width of land y= 20m digonal z= ? [tex]z^2= x^2+y^2\\\\z=\sqrt{ x^2+y^2} \\[/tex] substituting the values of x and y into the equation we can solve for z [tex]z=\sqrt{ 48^2+20^2} \\\\z=\sqrt{ 2304+400} \\z=\sqrt{ 2704} \\z=52m\\[/tex] The diagonal is 52m Hence since the interval = 22m the number if treee is [tex]\frac{52}{22} = 2.36\\[/tex] The number of trees must be whole numbers , the number of tree is 2 Log in to Reply

Answer:The number of tree is 2Explanation:the diagonal of the rectangular plot of land can be found using Pythagoras theorem

(the diagonal is the hypotenuse)Givenlength of land x= 48m

width of land y= 20m

digonal z= ?

[tex]z^2= x^2+y^2\\\\z=\sqrt{ x^2+y^2} \\[/tex]

substituting the values of x and y into the equation we can solve for z[tex]z=\sqrt{ 48^2+20^2} \\\\z=\sqrt{ 2304+400} \\z=\sqrt{ 2704} \\z=52m\\[/tex]

The diagonal is 52m

Hence since the interval = 22m the number if treee is

[tex]\frac{52}{22} = 2.36\\[/tex]

The number of trees must be whole numbers , the number of tree is 2
