# The width of a rectangular plot equal to 240.8 m leaves 28% of the length of this plot

**The width of a rectangular plot equal to 240.8 m leaves 28% of the length of this plot Find the area of the plot in hectares**

To solve this problem, recall the formula for the area of a rectangle. The area of the rectangle is equal to the product of the length and the width. S = a * b, where a is the length and b is the width. Recall that in order to find a number by its fraction expressed, you need to divide this number by a fraction. Let’s translate the percentages into parts.

28% = 28/100 = 0.28.

Let’s calculate what the length of the section is, knowing that its 0.28 part is 240.8 meters.

240.8 / 0.28 = 860 meters.

Let’s calculate the area of the site.

S = 860 * 240.8 = 207088 sq. M.

Let’s convert square meters to hectares. 207088 sq.m. = 20.7088 hectares.

Answer: 20.7 hectares.
