# a boy runs around a rectangular ground it's length is thrice it's breadth if the boy covers 2 km in 5 round find the length of the ground

If Breadth is Bthen Length = 3B

Perimeter of the ground = 2 * (L +B) = 2 * (3B+B) = 8B

In one roud the boy cover a distance equal to perimeter of the ground

In 5 rounds the boy will cover = 5 * 8B = 40B

It is given that the boy covers a distance of 2 Km or 2000 metre

Therefore 40B = 2000 m

or B= 2000/ 40 = 50Metre

and Length = 3B = 3 * 50 m = 150 m

Length of Ground = 150 metre. (ans)
