considering the walk 2 ft wide, it will get subtracted on all the sides
the length now becomes = 31-2-2 = 27 ft
width = 57-2-2 = 53 ft

so, area including the walk = 31*57 sq ft =  1767 sq ft

and area of just the yard = 27*53 sq ft = 1431 sq ft

so, Area of the Path = 1767 - 1431 sq ft = 336 sq ft
