Q6. The diagonal of a rectangular field is 60 metres more than the shorter side. If the longer side is 30 metres more than the shorter side, find the sides of the field.
Let the shorter side of the rectangle be x m.
Then, the larger side of the rectangle wil be .
Diagonal of the rectangle:
It is given that the diagonal of the rectangle is 60m more than the shorter side.
Solving by the factorizing method:
Hence, the roots are:
But the side cannot be negative.
Hence the length of the shorter side will be: 90 m
and the length of the larger side will be
