Let the sides be 7x and 3x
The area of a rectangle with length l and breadth b = l*b
So if 7x is taken as the length and 3x as the breadth, we get,
Solve this and you wil get the value of x .
So using that value of x f you can find 7x and 3x , they will be the lengths of the sides of the rectangle.
