HALF THE PERIMETER OF A GARDEN, WHOSE LENGTH IS 4m MORE THAN ITS WIDTH IS 36m. FIND THE DIMENSION OF GARDEN.
According to question,
Let width = x metres
and length, y = (x+ 4) metres.
Perimeter of garden = 36
⇒Perimeter of garden =
Now, Perimeter of garden (rectangle)= 2(x+y)
⇒ Width = x = 16 m
and Length = y = x+ 4 = 16+4 = 20 m
Hence, the dimensions of a garden are 16m and 20 m.
