Potatoes and beets were planted in a rectangular garden with sides 24m and 7m. It is known that potatoes are planted on a quarter of the area of this garden. What is the area where the beets were planted?

Before determining the area where the beets were planted, we will find the area of the vegetable garden.
To do this, multiply the width of the garden by its length.
Will be:
7 * 24 = 168 m ^ 2.
Since the entire area is 1, and potatoes occupy 1/4 of it, it means that the beets are occupied:
1 – 1/4 = 3/4 square.
We multiply the area of the entire garden by the known part.
We get:
168 * 3/4 = 42 * 3 = 126 m ^ 2.
Answer: The area where the beets were planted is 126 m ^ 2.
