Two rectangles 2

A square of area 36 cm2 is cut out to make two rectangles. A and B The area of area A to area B is 2 : 1 Find the dimensions of rectangles A and B.

Correct answer:

a =  4 cm
b =  6 cm
c =  2 cm
d =  6 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

S=36 cm2 S=x2  x=S=36=6 cm  S1=22+1 S=22+1 36=24 cm2 S2=12+1 S=12+1 36=12 cm2  a=S1/x=24/6=4 cm
b=x=6 cm
c=S2/x=12/6=2 cm
d=x=6 cm
