180 mStep-by-step explanation:Information given:

Since scale factor is 3, to get measurements of sides Mr. Sosa’s garden, sides of Mrs. Flores’s have to be multiplied by 3. Hence,

Diagonal of a rectangle = √length²+width²

Let Diagonal = D,

D= √60²+45²

=√3600+2025

=√5625

=75 m

If Mr. Sosa cut his garden diagonally,

perimeter= length+width+diagonal

=60+45+75=180 m
