# 'When 5 is subtracted from length and breadth of the rectangle, the perimeter becomes 26.' What is the mathematical form of the statement?A. x – y = 8B. x + y = 8C. x + y =23D. 2x + y = 21

Let the length be 'x' and breadth be 'y' units.

Perimeter of triangle = 2(x + y) units

If 5 is subtracted from length and breadth

Perimeter = 26 units eq.[Given]

2( x - 5 + y - 5) = 26

2(x + y - 10) = 26

x + y - 10 = 13

x + y = 23
