# Five square flower beds each of sides 1 m are dug on a piece of land 5 m long and 4 m wide. What is the area of the remaining part of the land?

**Solution:**

We will be using the area of square formula for finding the area of five square flower beds and the area of the rectangle formula for calculating the area of the piece of land.

From the given figure we see that,

Five 1 m square flower beds dug on a 5 m long and 4 m wide piece of land.

Let us calculate the area of the flower square bed

Area of flower square bed = side × side

⇒ Area of flower square bed = 1 × 1 = 1 m^{2}

Thus, area of 5 square beds = 1 × 5 = 5 m^{2}

Now, Area of the land = Length × Breadth

⇒ Area of the land = 5 × 4 = 20 m^{2}

Now, the remaining part of the land = Area of land – Area of 5 square beds

= 20 – 5

= 15 m^{2}

Therefore, the area of the remaining part of the land is 15 sq m.
