# The ratio between the perimeter and the breadth of a rectangle is 5 : 1. If the area of the rectangle is 216 sq. cm, what is the length of the rectangle?

A. 16 cm

B. 18 cm

C. 24 cm

E. None of these

### 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}
