The dimensions of a rectangular parcel.
The dimensions of the parcel is by .
The rectangular parcel is longer than its width and the diagonal between opposite corner is .
Let the width is w, length is l and diagonal is d of the parcel.
The given condition states that the length of parcel is longer than its width that is,
Use Pythagoras theorem for w, l, and d,
Substitute 130 for d and for l in the above equation and solve for width of parcel,
Further, solve above equation for value of w,
The width of land must be a positive number because dimensions cannot be measure in negative number so conclude that .
Substitute 50 for w into and solve for length of parcel,
Thus, the dimensions of the parcel is by .
