First, let's calculate the area that will be used to plant vegetables. This is 60% of the total area, so we have:
5000 \times 0.60 = 3000 \, \text{square meters}
Then, out of this area, 12% will be dedicated to planting lettuce. So, the area for lettuce cultivation is:
3000 \times 0.12 = 360 \, \text{square meters}
So, **360 square meters** of the plot will be used for lettuce cultivation.
