# A rectangle's length is 5 cm less than twice its width .If the length is decreased by 5 cm and width is is decreased by 2cm;the perimeter of the resulting rectangle will be 74cm.Find the length and the width of the original rectangle.

Asked by vismayagirish72 3rd February 2018, 6:38 PM

Let the width be=x

Then length=2x-5

A.T.Q

New length=2x

2(2x+x-2)=74

3x-2=37

3x=39

x=13

Therefore, Width=x=13cm

Length=2x-5=21cm
