Q.  The area of the square formed on the diagonal of a rectangle as its side is 108 1/3 % more than the area of the rectangle. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 28 units, find the difference between the sides of the rectangle?

a. 8
b. 12
c. 6
d. 2


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let the sides of the rectangle be l and b respectively.

From the given data,
(√l2 + b2) = (1 + 108 1/3 %)lb
=> l2 + b2 = (1 + 325/3 * 1/100)lb
= (1 + 13/12)lb
= 25/12 lb
=> (l2 + b2)/lb = 25/12
12(l2 + b2) = 25lb
Adding 24lb on both sides
12l2 + 12b2 + 24lb = 49lb
12(l2 + b2 + 2lb) = 49lb
but 2(l + b) = 28 => l + b = 14
12(l + b)2 = 49lb
=> 12(14)2 = 49lb
=> lb = 48
Since l + b = 14, l = 8 and b = 6
l – b = 8 – 6 = 2m.
