# A rectangular park is 45 m long and 30 m wide :

A rectangular park is 45 m long and 30 m wide. A path 2.5 m wide is constructed outside around the park. The area of the path is

(a) 200 m²

(b) 300 m²

(c) 400 m²

(d) 375 m²

**Answer: (d) 375 m square**

**Solution:-**

The length and breadth of a rectangular park = 45 m and 30 m

Then, the area of the path = 2 x 35 x 2.5 + 2 x 40 x 2.5

= 175 + 200

= 375 cm^2

Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 375 cm^2.
