Anna's garden has an area of 48 square feet. She plants peas in 3/8 of the garden and herbs in 1/4 of it. The rest of her garden is planted with peppers . How many square feet of the garden are planted with peppers?

2 Answer

  • Garden :48 square feet
    Peas : 3/8
    Herbs : 1/4
    You can do it in 2 ways.
    1st way :
    3/8 of 48 = 18
    1/4 of 48 = 12
    48 - 18 - 12 = 18

    2nd way :
    1 - 3/8 - 1/4 = 1 - 3/8 - 2/8 = 3/8
    3/8 of 48 = 18.

    Nonetheless, the answer would be 18.

    18 square feet of the garden are planted with peppers.
