On a rectangular plot of land 60 meters wide and 80 meters long, the owner

wants to install a road 5 meters wide around the perimeter of the entire property,

entirely contained within the property. What will be the surface area of

that road?

(A) 675

(B) 1,300

(C) 1,400

(D) 1,500

(E) 1,675

Area of the total rectangular plot = 80 * 60 = 4800

Length of plot without the road = 80-10 = 70

Breadth of plot without the road = 60- 10 = 50

Area of the rectangular plot without road = 70*50 = 3500

So, Surface are of road = 4800 - 3500 = 1300

Answer B
