    Answer:

    The original length is 9 cm and the original width 5 cm

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The area of  a rectangle A is given as the product of its’ length L and width W.

    Given that the width of a rectangle is 4cm less than the length then

    W = L – 4

    If each dimension were increased by 3cm, then the new

    Length

    = L + 3

    Width

    = W + 3

    the width of the new rectangle formed would be 2/3 the length of the new rectangle

    W + 3 = 2/3(L + 3)

    3W + 9 = 2L + 6

    3W = 2L +6 – 9

    3W = 2L – 3

    Recall that W = L – 4

    3(L – 4) = 2L – 3

    3L – 12 = 2L – 3

    3L – 2L = 12 – 3

    L = 9 cm

    W = 9 – 4

    = 5 cm
