Lenght of garden = 80 feet
width of garden = 35 feet
farmer would leki to keep a one foot boarder around the garden.
Lenght for planting vegetable=80-2=78 feet
width for planting vegetable=35-2=33 feet
Area for planting veletable=78*33=2574 square feet
Farmer divide the garden equally between tomatoes, peppers and cabbage. Therefore area for planting the tomatoes = 132574=858 square feet.
Hence 858 square feet can be used for the tomato planting

To determine whether caffeine consumption affects the ability to solve math problems, a researcher had one group solve math problems after taking a cup of caffeinated drink and another group solve math problems after taking a cup of water. The group who took the caffeinated drink completed 35 problems in one hour and the group that had water completed 20 problems in one hour. Assuming the number of problems solved is normally distributed in each group, what statistical test would be used to test the research hypothesis? Explain your answer.
