| **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.

We get:

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.

Answer:

There are 20 roses planted in the flowerbed.
