To determine the amount of wire needed to fence a playground that is 146 meters long and 35 meters broad, we can calculate the perimeter of the playground.
The perimeter is the distance around the playground, which we can find by adding the lengths of all sides.
For this rectangular playground, we have a length of 146 meters and a breadth of 35 meters. To calculate the perimeter, we add twice the length and twice the breadth.
Perimeter = 2 × (Length + Breadth)
Perimeter = 2 × (146 m + 35 m)
Perimeter = 2 × 181 m
Perimeter = 362 m
So, the perimeter of the playground is 362 meters.
To fence the playground, we need to cover the entire perimeter with wire. Therefore, the amount of wire needed is equal to the perimeter, which is 362 meters.
In summary, to fence the 146meter long and 35meter broad playground, we would require 362 meters of wire.
