# On a rectangular plot of land with sides of 50 m., And 35 m., Laid the foundation for the house.

**On a rectangular plot of land with sides of 50 m., And 35 m., Laid the foundation for the house. The foundation has the shape of a rectangle with sides of 12 m., And 10 m., What part of the area of the entire plot will be occupied by the house?**

To solve the problem, you first need to determine the area of the entire site.

To do this, the width should be multiplied by the length.

50 * 35 = 1750 square meters.

After that, in order to determine the area of the house, you should find the area of the foundation.

We find it similarly to finding the area of a plot, only now we multiply the width of 10 meters by the length of 12 meters.

12 * 10 = 120 square meters.

To determine what part the house will occupy from the area of the entire plot, the area of the house should be divided by the area of the plot.

120/1750 = 0.0685 or 6.85%.
