A. 16 cm

B. 18 cm

C. 24 cm

D. Data inadequate

E. None of these

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & \frac{{2\left( {l + b} \right)}}{b} = \frac{5}{1} \cr & \Rightarrow 2l + 2b = 5b \cr & \Rightarrow 3b = 2l \cr & b = \frac{2}{3}l \cr & {\text{Then,}} \cr & {\text{Area = }}216\,c{m^2} \cr & \Rightarrow l \times b = 216 \cr & \Rightarrow l \times \frac{2}{3}l = 216 \cr & \Rightarrow {l^2} = 324 \cr & l = 18\,cm \cr} $$
