# The sides

The sides of the rectangle are in a ratio of 3: 5 and its circumference measures 72 cm. Calculate:
a) the size of both sides of the rectangle
b) the area of the rectangle
c) the length of the diagonals

a =  13.5 cm
b =  22.5 cm
S =  303.75 cm2
u =  26.2393 cm

### Step-by-step explanation:

5a=3b
2(a+b)=72

5•a=3•b
2•(a+b)=72

5a-3b = 0
2a+2b = 72

a = 27/2 = 13.5
b = 45/2 = 22.5
