| **The foundations for the house were laid on a rectangular plot of land with sides of 20 meters and 30 meters. The dimensions of the foundation are 12 meters and 10 meters. What part of the area of the entire plot will be occupied by the house?**

Recall that the area of a rectangular area is calculated as the product of its length and width.

1) Find the area of the entire land plot:

20 * 30 = 600 m ^ 2.

2) We find out the area of the future house by the size of its foundation:

12 * 10 = 120 m ^ 2.

3) Determine how much of the land area the house will occupy:

120/600 = 1/5.

Answer: the house will occupy 1/5 of the land plot.
