| **The length of the rectangular section is 14 m, and the width is 9 m less. Find the area of the second section if it is 2 times less than the area of the first.**

Find the width of the first rectangular section.

According to the condition of the problem, the length of this section is 14 meters, and its width is 9 meters less, therefore, the width of this rectangular section is:

14 – 9 = 5 m.

Let us find the area S of a given rectangular section as the product of the length and width of this section:

S = 14 * 5 = 70 m².

According to the condition of the problem, the area of the second section is 2 times less than the area of the first section, therefore, the area of the second section is:

70/2 = 35 m².

Answer: the area of the second plot is 35 m².
