1. 180 m

Step-by-step explanation:

Information given:

• length of Mrs. Flores’ garden= 20 m
• width of Mrs. Flores’ garden = 15 m
• Scale factor = 3

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,

• length of Mr. Sosa’s garden= 3×20= 60 m
• width of Mr. Sosa’s garden= 3×15= 45 m

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
