    Ok, well start by working out how long the path needs to be around the lake, using the measurements of 7m and 4m to help you. Then you know how long the paths needs to be. Then you can use this and the width of your path to work out the full area of the path.

    I'm not going to tell u the answer straight away but say the area of the path is A.
    Then you can work out how many 10cm2 bags of gravel you need to make up at the number A.
