**On a rectangular plot of land with sides of 50 and 35m, they want to place a pool with a length of 20 and a width of 7m. How much of the area of the entire plot will the pool take**

Let’s calculate the area of the entire site. We multiply the length – 50 meters by the width – 35 meters:

35 * 50 = 1750 m².

The total area of the plot is 1750 m².

Let’s calculate how many meters the pool will take. Let’s multiply the length of the pool – 20 meters by its width – 7 meters:

20 * 7 = 140 m².

Let’s make a proportion and find out what part of the entire site is occupied by the pool:

1750 m² – 100%,

140 m² – x%.

Let’s solve the proportion and find the unknown x:

x = 140 * 100: 1750 = 8%.

The pool makes up 8% of the entire plot.

Answer: the pool makes up 8% of the entire plot.
