Ex 11.1 | Question 7

Text Solution

What is known?

The perimeter and the breadth of the rectangle.

What is unknown?

Length and area of the rectangle.


Since the perimeter and breadth of rectangle are given, we can find out the length of the rectangle. From the values of length and breadth, area of rectangle can be calculated.



Breadth of the rectangle \(= 30 \,\rm{}cm\)

Perimeter of a rectangle \(= 130 \,\rm{}cm.\)

We know that,

\(\begin{align}&\text{Perimeter of rectangle} \\ &= 2 \times \left( {{\rm{Length}} + {\rm{Breadth}}} \right)\end{align} \)

\[\begin{align}130 &= 2 \times \left( {l + 30} \right)\\130 &= 2\,l + 60\\2\,l &= 130-60\\2\,l &= 70\\l &= \frac{{70}}{2}\\l &= 35\;\rm{cm}\end{align}\]

Area of rectangle

\[\begin{align}&=\text{ Length} \times\text{ Breadth} \\ & = 35 \times 30 \\ &= 1050 \,\rm{cm^2}\end{align} \]
