Area of pentagonal park according to Jyoti's diagram :-

= 2(Area of trapezium)   =  $2(\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{15}{2}\times45) = \frac{15\times45}{2} = 337.5 m^2$

Area of pentagonal park according to Kavita's diagram :-

= Area of triangle + Area of square.

$= \frac{1}{2}\times15\times15 + 15\times15 = 112.5 + 225 = 337.5 m^2$
