    Answer:

    Area of the rectangular trench = 1 square meter

    Step-by-step explanation:

    length of the garden = 2 1/2 m width of the garden = 2 m

    length of both garden and trench = 3 1/2 m

    width of both garden and trench = 3m

    Length of the trench = Difference in length

    = 3 1/2 m – 2 1/2 m

    = 7/2 – 5/2

    = (7 – 5) / 2

    = 2/2

    = 1 m

    Length of the trench = 1 m

    Width of the trench = difference in width

    = 3 m – 2 m

    = 1 m

    Width of the trench = 1 m

    Area of the rectangular trench = length × width

    = 1 m × 1 m

    = 1 m²

    Or

    1 square meter

    Area of the rectangular trench = 1 square meter
