# The Area of a Square Filed is 8 Hectares. How Long Would a Man Take to Cross It Diagonally by Walking at the Rate of 4 Km per Hour? - Mathematics

The area of a square filed is 8 hectares. How long would a man take to cross it diagonally by walking at the rate of 4 km per hour?

#### Solution

Given, area of square field = 8 hectares

= 8xx 0.01 [1 hectare= 0.01 km^2]

=0.08 km^2

Now, area of square field ="(side of square)"^2=0.08

⇒ side of square field= sqrt0.08=(2sqrt2)/10=sqrt2/5=km

Distance covered by man along the diagonal of square field = length of diagonal

sqrt2 "side"=sqrt2xxsqrt2/5=2/5 km

Speed of walking = 4km/h

∴ Time taken = distance/ speed=2/(5xx4)=2/20=1/10

=0.1 hour

= 1/10xx60 min=6 minutes`
