# Sweety runs around a square park of side 75 m. Bulbul runs around a rectangular park with length 60 m and breadth 45 m. Who covers less distance?

**Solution:**

We will be using the formula for the perimeter of a square and the perimeter of a rectangle to calculate the distance covered by Sweety and Bulbul in the respective parks.

Side of square park = 75 m

The perimeter of the square park = 4 × side

⇒ 4 × 75 = 300

Hence, Sweety covers 300 meters around the square park.

Now, the length of the rectangular park = 60 m

The breadth of the rectangular park = 45 m

The perimeter of rectangular park = 2 (Length + Breadth)

⇒ 2 (60 + 45)

⇒ 2 × 105 = 210

Hence, Bulbul covers 210 meters around the rectangular park.

Thus, we see that Bulbul covers a distance of 210 m which is lesser than the distance of 300 m covered by Sweety. Therefore, Bulbul covers a lesser distance.

## Sweety runs around a square park of side 75 m. Bulbul runs around a rectangular park with length 60 m and breadth 45 m. Who covers less distance?

**Summary:**

It is given Sweety runs around a square park of side 75 m and Bulbul runs around a rectangular park with length 60 m and breadth 45 m. We see that Bulbul covers a distance of 210 m which is lesser than the distance of 300 m covered by Sweety. Therefore, Bulbul covers a lesser distance.
