# Rectangle - sides 3

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