| **This 2400 square meter rectangular piece of land is surrounded by a 200 meter long fence. Find the length of this piece.**

Since the fence is placed along the perimeter of the entire site, the area of the images is equal to the area of the site, that is, 2400 m ^ 2.

Let’s write down the general formula for finding the area of a rectangle:

S = a * b (where S is the area, a is the length of the rectangle, b is the width of the rectangle).

It is given that the length of the site / fence is 200 meters. Substituting the data into the formula, we can express and find the width of the given rectangle:

S = a * b;

2400 = 200 * X;

X = 2400: 200;

X = 12.

Thus, the width of this section / rectangle is 12 meters.

Answer: the width is 12 meters.
