The area of the rectangle is 750 meters and the length is 30 cm. How many meters the width of this rectangle is less than the length.
Having compiled the equation, we find what the width of this rectangle is equal to.
Let’s denote by x the width of the rectangle.
According to the condition of the problem, the length of this rectangle is 30 meters, and the area of this rectangle is 750 m².
Since the area of any rectangle is equal to the product of the length and width of this rectangle, we can write the following equation:
30 * x = 750.
We solve the resulting equation and find the width of the rectangle:
x = 750/30;
x = 25 m.
Let’s find how many meters the width of this rectangle is less than its length:
30 – 25 = 5 m.
Answer: the width of the rectangle is 5 meters less than its length.
