Half the perimeter of a rectangular garden, whose length is 4 m more than its width, is 36 m. Find the dimensions of the garden
Solution:
Assuming the length of the garden as x and the width of the garden as y, two linear equations can be formed for the given data.
Perimeter of rectangle = 2(length + breadth)
Let the length of the garden be x and breadth be y
Then x = y + 4 [ Since its given that length is 4 m more than its width]
x - y = 4
y = x - 4
x |
8 |
16 |
y = x - 4 |
4 |
12 |
The half perimeter of the rectangle is x + y = 36 [Since, perimeter = 2(x + y)]
y = 36 - x
x |
16 |
26 |
y = 36 - x |
20 |
10 |
Thus, Length, x = 20 m and Breadth, y = 16 m
