Let the breadth of the rectangular storehouse be x m.
Length = x + 21
Diagonal = 6 + length = x + 27
By Pythagoras theorem, we have
(x + 21)2 + x2 = (x + 27)2
x2 + 441 + 42x + x2 = x2 + 729 + 54x
x2 - 12x - 288 = 0
x2 - 24x + 12x - 288 = 0
x(x - 24) + 12(x - 24) = 0
(x - 24)(x + 12) = 0
Therefore, x = -12, 24
