    Answer:

    A=10506.25 Sq.yards

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Width of the park=85 yds

    Lenght of the park=120 yds

    Now,

    A=L*W

    A=120*85

    A=10200 square yards. This is the area of your given rectangle.

    Now,

    P=2(L+W)

    P=2(120+85)

    P=2(205)

    P=410 this is the perimeter of your given rectangle.

    Now,

    a=410/4=102.5

    Now,calculate the area of newly given distance of each side:

    A=a^2

    A=102.5^2

    A=10506.25 Sq. Yards

    This is the new area and is larger than the area of the given rectangle which was 10200 square yards.
