Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ328

ABCD is a rectangle. Area X is 5 cm2 greater than Area Y. Find the length of BC.

Solution:

The area of the triangle EDC = 10 × 15 ÷ 2 = 75cm2

Area X is greater than Area Y by 5cm2

By removing 5cm2 from the triangle EDC give the area of the rectangle ABCD

The area of rectangle ABCD = 75 – 5 = 70cm2

The length BC = 70 ÷ 15 = 4 10/15 = 4 2/3cm
