Hey, could someone please explain Q3. OF IMAT 2019. I solved it and am getting the answer as C while the answer happens to be D.

Hey, the total lawn area can be calculated efficiently if one perceives the shape as a 4 x 6 rectangle with a 2 x 1 rectangle taken out.

(4 x 6) - 2 = 22m^2

The amount of seed required is 22 x 50 = 1100g or 1.1kg

So, a 1kg packet and a 100g packet are needed. £14 + £2 = £16
