# A hedge boundary needs to be planted around a rectangular lawn of size 72 m × 18 m. If 3 shrubs can be planted in a metre of hedge, how many shrubs will be planted in all?

**Solution:**

Given, a hedge boundary needs to be planted around a rectangular lawn of size 72 m × 18 m.

3 shrubs can be planted in a metre of hedge.

We have to find the number of shrubs that can be planted in all.

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(length × breadth)

Length of rectangular lawn = 72 m

Breadth of rectangular lawn = 18 m

Perimeter of rectangular lawn = 2(72 + 18)

= 2(90)

= 180 m

In one meter 3 shrubs can be planted.

Number of shrubs that can be planted in rectangular lawn = 3 × perimeter of lawn

= 3(180)

= 540 shrubs

Therefore, the number of shrubs that can be planted is 540.
