    Simplification

    Hi-

    I would like to simplify this problem: Texan county garden to be split into 22 equally sized plots. If the garden occupies 3/4 acre of land, how large will each plot be?

    Your help is appreciated in getting me onto the right track.

    This is what I get: 1.33

    Is it correct?

    depends what units you want it in

    an acre of land (in square feet) is 43560sf
    3/4 of an acre is 32670sf

    for 22 eq sized plots 32670/22 = 1485sf

    however didn't mention if you need a forumla to
    give the width and lenght of one of the plots to fit the dimensions of the garden which would be needed to lay it out.
