Expert Answer:

The sides of a triangular plot are in the ratio of 3:5:7.
Let the sides are 3x, 5x and 7x.
Perimeter of a triangle = 300
3x + 5x + 7x = 300
15x = 300
x = 20
Then the sides are 60 m, 100 m, 140 m
The area of triangle using Heron's formula a = 60 m, b = 100 m and c = 140 m
s = (a + b + c)/2 = 150
Area of triangle = √s(s - a)(s - b)(s - c)
                       = √150(150 - 60)(150 - 100)(150 - 140)
                       = 2598 m2
