# A 3 m wide path runs outside and around a rectangular park of length 125 m and breadth 65 m. Find the area of the path.

**Solution:**

Let's draw a diagram as shown below.

Let the blue region represent the park and the yellow region represent the path surrounding it.

Area of park = Length × Breadth

= 125 m × 65 m

= 8125 m^{2}

Length of the garden including path = 125 m + 3 m + 3 m = 131 m

Breadth of the garden including path = 65 m + 3 m + 3 m = 71 m

Area of the park including the path = Length × Breadth

= 131 m × 71 m

= 9301 m^{2}

Area of the path = Area of the park including path - Area of the park

= 9301 m^{2} - 8125 m^{2}

= 1176 m^{2}

Hence, required area of the path = 1176 m^{2}
