Roses are planted at the corners and sides of the square-shaped flower bed at a distance of 2 meters from each other. How many bushes are planted if the sides of the square are 10 meters?
To solve the problem, first find the perimeter of the given flower bed by multiplying the 4 sides of the square by the length of one of its sides.
10 * 4 = 40 meters.
Since we have 4 equal sides, 1 common rose is planted on the sides that have a common angle.
We have 4 roses.
In this case, 4 more roses can be planted between every two roses in the corners.
In this case, we get:
4 * 4 = 16 roses.
The total number of all roses in the flowerbed will be:
16 + 4 = 20 roses.
There are 20 roses planted in the flowerbed.
