A rectangle of area 105 cm² has its length equal to x cm. Write down its breadth in terms of x. Given that the perimeter is 44 cm, write down an equation in x and solve it to determine the dimensions of the rectangle. Looking to do well in your science exam ? Learn from an expert tutor.

Given:

Perimeter of rectangle = 44cm

Length + breadth = 44/2 = 22cm

Let us consider length be ‘x’

So according to the question,

x(22 - x) = 105

\begin{array}{l} 22 x-x^{2}-105=0 \\ x^{2}-22 x+105=0 \end{array}

let us factorize,

\begin{array}{l} x^{2}-15 x-7 x+105=0 \\ x(x-15)-7(x-15)=0 \end{array}

(x - 15) (x – 7) = 0

So,

(x - 15) = 0 or (x – 7) = 0

x = 15 or x = 7

∴ Length = 15cm

Breadth = 22 – x = 22 – 15 = 7cm
