The circumference

The circumference and width of the rectangle are in a ratio of 5: 1. its area is 216cm2. What is its length?

Correct answer:

a =  18 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

S=216 cm2 S=ab o:b=5:1 2(a+b):b=5:1  2(a+b)=5b 2a+2b=5b 2a=3b  S=a(2/3a) a=3/2 S=3/2 216=18 cm b=2/3 a=2/3 18=12 cm   Verifying Solution:  S1=a b=18 12=216 cm2 o=2 (a+b)=2 (18+12)=60 cm
