1. Participate in the preparation of a food garden nine meters square. Cover the following points.[edit | edit source]
| Note: The editors of this answer book feel that there is an error in the official version of this requirement.
Technically, nine meters square is a square that is nine meters long and nine meters wide. This would be equivalent to 81 square meters. However, nine is kind of a strange number to give for this requirement, and that makes us wonder if there is a mistake in this requirement. Did they intend to write "nine square meters" instead? If so, this would be an area equal to a square which is three meters long and three meters wide (or an area of about 10 feet by 10 feet, or 100 square feet in the English system). Nine meters square is a large garden, but not unreasonably large. Nine square meters is a small garden, but not unreasonably small. We leave the interpretation up to the instructor.
