(a) What fraction of Jemma's yard will be missed by all four sprinklers? (b) How much money would go to waste (due watering the fence, other people's yards, etc.) if she ran the sprinklers right now?
(c) If Jemma adjusts her sprinklers to rotate through a 90◦ angle (so no water is wasted) and increases their spray distance just enough to ensure that the whole yard is covered (note: some parts may
