Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then, if 40ft is the length, u can multiply that times the width of the walk, so 3 ft, 40*3= 120...i think that would be the area 120 sq ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We start by drawing a rectangle representing the fence surrounding the yard. Inside the fence, we draw a wide walk going along the fence. inner rectangle's length is the yard length twice the walk width. so 7133=65 ft and the width is 4033=34 ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since the walk is the region between the 2 rectangles..it's area is the area of the larger rectangle minus the area of the smaller rectangle. so a=40x7134x65 =28402210 =630 ft ^2
