Two 1 m wide roads pass through a lawn which is 37 m long and 29 m wide and divides it into 4 equal parts. What is the area of each piece of the lawn?

m^{2}

Twice the length of each piece + one meter of the road
width is the length of the lawn. Thus twice the length of each piece = 36, so
the length of each piece is 36 ÷ 2 = 18 m. Similarly, twice the width of each
piece + one meter of road width = width of the lawn. Thus twice the width of
each piece = 28 m, so the width of each piece = 28 ÷ 2 = 14 m. The area of each
piece is therefore 18 × 14 = 252m^{2}.
