The length of the field is 105 yards and width is 108 feet.

It is known that,

1yard = 3 feet.

Therefore,

Step 2

Assume that a person runs diagonally across the field from one end to the other.

Let *x* feet be the distance covered by him.

The following diagram shows the dimensions of the field.
