Q. 9

A wire of length

Answer :

Given a wire of length 86 cm is bent into a rectangle.


Perimeter of rectangle = 86 cm


It is also given that length of the rectangle is 7 cm more than its breadth.


Let length and breadth of the rectangle be ‘l’ cm and ‘b’ cm.


l = b + 7


We know, Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)


86 = 2(l + b)


86 = 2[(b + 7) + b]


86 = 2(2b + 7)


4b + 14 = 86


4b = 72



We have l = b + 7


l = 18 + 7


l = 25 cm


Thus, length and breadth of rectangle are 25 cm and 18 cm.
