### Discussion :: Area - General Questions (Q.No.3)

I have done like below : Perimeter=2(l+b), 5x=2(l+x)=2l+2x => l=3x/2, Area = 3x/2*x = 216=> I got the value for x is 12 which is the length. Is it correct ah? |

No its wrong. Value is given in ratio. |

Shahid said: (May 19, 2011) | |

@Bharathi ..your answer is absolutely right. There is no error in it. |

Muthulakshmi said: (Sep 8, 2011) | |

@Bharathi your ans is correct .12 is not the length it is the value of breath. see your explanation. perimeter=2(l+b) ratio b/w perimeter and breathis 5:1 5x=2(l+x)=2l+2x=>"l=3x/2", area =3x*x/2=21=>x=12 which is not the value of length substitute the value of "x" in the equation L=3x/2=(3*12)/2=18 ARE U CLEAR ? |

Engr. Md. Easir Arafat said: (Nov 23, 2014) | |

Let the breadth to be x and the length to be y. Hence, perimeter becomes 5x. Now, 5x = 2(x+y). Or, 3x = 2y -----------1. Again, x*y = 216. Or, x = 648/y ----------2. Putting the value of x in eq. no. 1, we get, 648/y = 2y. Or (2y*y) = 648. Or y = Sqrt 324 = 18 cm. |

2(l+b)/b. Please explain why divided b? |

Sravani said: (Jul 12, 2015) | |

Ratio is given in terms of perimeter and breath i.e, 5:1. Let length be 'l' and breadth be 'b'. Perimeter = 2 (l+b). Breadth = b. So (perimeter/breadth) = 5:1. (2(l+b)/b) = 5:1. I think you got? |

I cannot understand it. Please solve it by a simple rule. |

Kartik said: (Oct 21, 2016) | |

How can 2 (l + b)/b we let as = 5/1? |

Shona said: (Jan 7, 2017) | |

Please explain in simple method. |

Ramana said: (Feb 14, 2017) | |

Not understanding. Please explain me. |

2(5x+x)=216, 12x=216, x=18. |

Karan Khitan said: (Feb 8, 2018) | |

Suppose 5x nd 1x. Perimeter = 2 (L*b). 2(5x+1x)=216, 2(6x)=216, 12x=216, X=18cm. |

Tanweer said: (Aug 8, 2018) | |

Simply; 2(l+b)=216. 2(5+2)=2016. 12=216. Ans = 18. |

Mahi said: (Dec 1, 2018) | |

2(5+1)216. = 12/216 = 18 |

Migma Tshering Tamang said: (Oct 13, 2020) | |

Perimeter=2(l+b). 5x=2l+2(x), 3x=2l, l=3/2x or 1.5x. Therefore, b=x and l=1.5x. So, Area; 1.5x * x=216 1.5x^2=216 x^2=144 x=12 Length=1.5x. = 1.5(12). = 18 ans. |
