# The length of the plot of land is rectangular 25 m, and the width is 24 m. One tenth of this plot is occupied

**The length of the plot of land is rectangular 25 m, and the width is 24 m. One tenth of this plot is occupied by buildings. Vegetables are planted on the fourth part of it, and fruit trees are on the rest of the area. How much area is covered by fruit trees?**

1) What is the area of the land plot? The plot has the shape of a rectangle, and the area of the rectangle is equal to the product of length and width.

S = 25 * 24 = 600 (m ^ 2)

2) What is the area occupied by the buildings? One tenth is 1/10. To find the fraction of a number, you need to multiply the number by the fraction.

600 * 1/10 = 60 (m ^ 2)

3) What is the area covered by vegetables? The fourth part is 1/4.

600 * 1/4 = 150 (m ^ 2)

4) What is the area occupied by buildings and vegetables together?

60 + 150 = 210 (m ^ 2)

5) What area is occupied by fruit trees?

600 – 210 = 390 (m ^ 2)

Answer. 390 m ^ 2.
