# Rectangle - sides 3

If in the rectangle ABCD we enlarge the side a by 5 cm and decrease the side b by 2 cm, the rectangle area will be reduced by 5 cm². When we decrease the length of the side a by 4 cm and and at the same time we increase the length of side b by 3 cm we increases the area of the original rectangle by 5 cm².
