# A garden is 90 m long and 75 m broad. A path 5 m wide is to be built outside and around it. Find the area of the path. Also find the area of the garden in hectare

**Solution:**

Let's draw the figure according to the given question.

According to the diagram, the yellow region represents the garden and the blue region is the path surrounding it.

Area of garden = Length × Breadth

= 90 m × 75 m

= 6750 m^{2}

Length of the garden including path = 90 m + 5 m + 5 m = 100 m

Breadth of the garden including path = 75 m + 5 m + 5 m = 85 m

Area of the garden including path = Length × Breadth

= 100 m × 85 m

= 8500 m^{2}

Area of the path = 8500 m^{2} – 6750 m^{2 }= 1750 m^{2}

Required area of path = 1750 m^{2}

Area of the garden = 6750 m^{2} = 0.675 hectares
