(E) 4,760



Here
First we need to find the total Lots after that we can find the value of x

Let total lots = P
lots with 80 feet = \(\frac{1}{9}\)

SO the lots with 100 feet = \(\frac{8}{9}\)

Therefore lots for 100 feet = \(\frac{8}{9} * p\) = 40 (since the remaining 40 plot are to have 100 feet)

or p = 45 lots

Now Total feet x = total lot for 80 feet + total lot for 100 feet

= \({(\frac{1}{9} * 45) * 80}\) \(+\) \({(\frac{8}{9} * 45) * 100}\) = 4400
