Town Plan

The architect is coming tomorrow to inspect the proposed sites for the new town hall and adjacent park. They are labeled T and P on the sketch above. She will need to know the square footage of each site. Unfortunately, some of the town maps cannot be located. Based on the rectangular areas that are shown, all in square feet, you are to figure the areas of the sites T and P.

Caution: the sketch is not drawn to scale.

Bonus: If it is known that the section of town represented by the entire sketch is 480 feet across by 360 feet down, find the dimensions of T and P.
