The sides of a rectangular piece of paper are in the ratio 2 : 3 .If the area is 150 sq.cm , what are the sides ?

Let the length be 3x and breadth be 2x.

Since area is 150 sq. cm

So,

So the length is 15 cm and breadth is 10 m.

 The area of rectangle =lxb

 here given that the area of the rect.=150sq.cm

The ratio=2:3=>2x+3x

2x+3x=150

5x=150

x=150/5

x=30

means 2x=2x30 = 60 and 3x=3x30 = 90

And the sides are 60 and 90.
