 Garden Path (Posted on 2006-05-10)
A gardener has a rectangular garden 11m (AD) by 29m (AB) and wants to install a diagonal path exactly 1m wide. The edges of the path are ED and BF as shown in the diagram.
```A_____________E__B
|            /  /|
|          /  /  |
|        /  /    |
|      /  /      |
|    /  /        |
|  /  /          |
|/__/____________|
D   F            C
```
Find the exact area of the path. (Note: EB is not the width of the path.)
