| **The perimeter of the rectangle is 120 cm, the length of the rectangle is 10 cm longer than the width. Find the area of the rectangle.**

1. Let the width of the rectangle be c, then the length is c + 10 cm.

2. Let’s compose the equation of the length of the rectangle perimeter and find with:

2 * (c + c + 10) = 120,

4s + 20 = 120,

4s = 120 – 20,

4s = 100,

c = 10/4,

c = 25 cm.

3. Find the length of the rectangle:

25 + 10 = 35 cm.

4. Find the area of the rectangle by multiplying its length by width:

35 * 25 = 875 cm2.

Answer: the area of the rectangle is 875 cm2.
