332 ft²

Step-by-step explanation:

A rectangular garden measures 33 ft by 46 ft. Surrounding (and bordering) the garden is a path 2 ft. Find the area of this path. Be sure to include the correct unit in your answer.

Solution:

The area of the rectangular garden = length * breadth = 33 ft. * 46 ft. = 1518 ft²

Since the path surrounding the garden is 2ft, the length of the path with the garden = 46 + 2 + 2 = 50 ft

The width of the path with the garden = 33 + 2 + 2 = 37 ft.

Area of the path with the garden = length * breadth = 50 ft * 37 ft = 1850 ft².

Area of the path = 1850 ft² – 1518 ft.² = 332 ft²
