A rectangular park is 70 meters wide and 120 meters long. Give the length and width of another rectangular park that has the same perimeter but a smaller area.


  1. Answer:
    1 m by 189 m
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The perimeter is 2(70+120)=380.
    The area is (70)(120)=8400.
    If we let the park have a width of 1 meter and a length of 189 meters, then the area will be 189 square meters, which is smaller than 8400 square meters, as required.
