The given figure shows a rectangular garden with dimensions of 16m by 20m. The garden has 6 identical flower beds. What is the perimeter of a single flower bed ?

The solution to your question is as follows:

The length of the rectangular garden = 20 m

The breadth of the rectangular garden = 16 m

Let Length of flower bed = l

Let Breadth of flower bed = b

From the figure, breadth of rectangular garden = 2*length of the flower bed (Since flower beds are identical)

=> 16 = 2l

=> l = 8 cm

Hence length of flower bed = 8 cm

Also from the figure, Length of rectangular garden = 2*length of flower bed + breadth of the flower bed

=> 20 = 2l + b

=> 20 = 16 + b

=> b = 20 - 16 = 4 cm

Hence breadth of flower bed = 4 cm

Now perimeter of one flower bed = 2(l+b) = 2(8+4) = 24 cm

**Hence perimeter of one flower bed = 24 cm**
