Question #2157

1200 Aspen trees are to be planted near one shoreline along a strip 35 feet wide by 1100 feet long. What spacing will you use?

Expert's answer

Let's denote the width of one tree planting area as x, the length as y. Thus there should be 35/x trees along the width and 1100/y trees along the length of the shoreline. We get the following expression:

35/x * 1100/y = 1200;

xy = 32.083 ft2

x = 32.083/y.

35/x * 1100/y = 1200;

xy = 32.083 ft2

x = 32.083/y.
