Q.3. Is it possible to design a rectangular mango grove whose length is twice its breadth, and the area is 800 m^{2}? If so, find its length and breadth.

Ans:

Q.4. Is the following situation possible? If so, determine their present ages. The sum of the ages of two friends is 20 years. Four years ago, the product of their ages in years was 48.

Ans:

Q.5. Is it possible to design a rectangular park of perimeter 80 m and area 400 m^{2}? If so, find its length and breadth.

Ans:

Hence,

Length of rectangle, l = x = 20 m and

Breadth of a rectangle, y = 40 – x = 40 – 20 = 20 m
