A rectangular field is 16m broad and the ratio of the length and breadth is 3:2.

1.find the length of the field

2.find the perimeter of the field

3.find the area of the field.

1.find the length of the field

2.find the perimeter of the field

3.find the area of the field.

Answer:

x = length of the rectangle = 24 m

Perimeter of the field = 80 m

Area of the field = 384 square meter

Step-by-step explanation:

Width of the rectangle = 16 m

Ratio of the length and width = 3:2

Let

x = length of the rectangle

Ratio of the length and width = x : 16

Equate both ratios

x : 16 = 3 : 2

x/16 = 3/2

Cross product

x * 2 = 16 * 3

2x = 48

x = 48/2

x = 24

x = length of the rectangle = 24 m

Perimeter of the field = 2(length + width)

= 2(24 m + 16 m)

= 2(40 m)

= 80 m

Perimeter of the field = 80 m

Area of the field = length × width

= 24 m × 16 m

= 384 m²

Area of the field = 384 square meter
