Expert Answer

Let the breadth of the rectangle be x.

We konw that,

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(length + breadth)

→2(length + x) = 60

→length = 30 - x

Area of a rectangle = length × breadth = 216 .... given

→(30 - x)x=216

→ x

^{2}- 30x + 216 = 0^{ }^{→ x2 - 18x - 12x + 216 = 0 }

^{ → x(x - 18)-12(x - 18) = 0→ (x - 18)(x - 12) = 0}

→ x = 18 or x = 12

If breadth is 18cm then length is 12cm and if breadth is 12cm then length is 18cm.
