Answer :

Let sides of rectangle be L and B.

We know, Diagonal =


Or Diagonal2 = L2 + B2


102 = L2 + B2


100 sq. cm = L2 + B2


This can be rewritten as


100 = (L + B)2 – 2LB


Area of rectangle = L × B = 62.5 sqcm


Hence,


100 = (L + B)2 - 2 × 62.5


(L + B)2 = 100 + 125


Or L + B = = 15cm
