I have my vegetable garden which is 2 m by 200 cm. If l decide to plant rows of lettuce seedlings in this garden, help me calculate the following:
a) If each row is 2 m long and 50 cm wide, and seedlings are planted right next to each other, how many rows can l plant in the vegetable garden?
b) If one row of lettuce seeds costs R 12,95, how much will the seeds cost in total?
c) If l leave 1 m^2 of space in which to plant carrots, what percentage of the total area of the vegetable garden will be taken up by carrots?

a) 2 m / 50 cm = 2 m / 0,5 m = 8. He can plant 8 rows of seedlings.

b) 8 x R 12,95 = R 103,60

c) Total area = 16 m2.

1 m2 / 16 m2 = 0,0625.

0,0625 x 100 = 6,25%
