Ans. (a) Yes, I can divide the land equally among Nasreena’s three children. Chumki, Jhumri and Imran such that each gets one tree. Each person’s piece of land is coloured differently as shown in the figure.

(b)  (b) Let Chumki’s land be ABCDEF, Jhumri’s land be BGHIJC and that of Imran be DJIHKE.
Total land in area = 10  9 m = 90 square metres
Since each person gets equal land.
Each share =  square metres = 30 square metres
Thus, each chold gets 30 square metres of land.

(c)  For Fencing:
Perimeter of Chumki’s land ABCDEF = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FA
= (4 + 6 +2 + 3+ 2+ 9) m = 26 m
Perimeter of Jhumri’s land BGHIJC = BG + GH + HI + IJ + JC + CB
= (6 + 4+ 3 + 2 + 3+ 6) m = 24 m
Perimeter of Imran’s land DJIHKE = DJ + JI + IH + HK + KE + ED
= (5 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 8 +3) m = 26 m

(d)  Clearly, Chumki and Imran needs longest but equal wires to make a fence.
