Question

WHat are the dimensions of a rectangle whose perimeter is 56ft. and whose area is 180 sq. ft.?

Step 1

Let x and y be the length and breadth of rectangle respectively. Firsstly, we use the formula for perimeter of rectangle which is 2(length+breadth) to get first equation in x and y

Step 2

Now we use formula for area of triangle which ids length* breadth to get another equation.

Step 3

Now we solve the two equations to...
