Area Calculation MCQ 8: The ratio of the length and breadth of a plot is 3:2. If the breadth is 40 meters less than the length, what is the perimeter of the plot?

a) 480m                b) 320m                  c) 400m               d) 450m

Solution:

Let the breadth of the plot is x meters.

Since breadth is 40 meters less than the  length, so if we subtract 40 meters from length we  will get the breadth !

i-e

if Length=L = x meters

then,

But given that;

$\frac{L}{B}=\frac{3}{2}$

so,

$\frac{x}{x-40}=\frac{3}{2}$

$2x=3x-120$

$x=120$

so,

$Breadth = x-40=120-40=80$

Perimeter of the rectangular plot then is ;

$Perimeter=L+B+L+B=2(L+B)=z(120+80)=2\times 200=400$

So the perimeter of the plot is 400 meters
