# Garden Plots

Six students have garden plots of various sizes in a garden. All the plots are rectangles and the garden itself is a rectangle.

Denzel’s plot has an area of *bc*.

Mina’s plot has an area of *be*.

Jason’s plot has an area of *ad*.

Rosa’s plot has an area of *ae*.

Chen’s plot has an area of *ac*.

Emma’s plot has an area of *bd*.

- Make a sketch showing how the garden might be divided. Label each plot with the name of the student who is in charge of the plot, followed by the area of the plot.

## Hint:

- Start by drawing Denzel’s garden plot. Label the length b and the width c.
- Whose plot can you draw next to his?
