Area = Length x BreadthEC72 wrote:Need help with the following question. Thanks in advance.
The length of a rectangle is 20 m, correct to the nearest metre. If the area of the field is 332m2, correct to the nearest square metre, find the least possible breadth of the field, giving your answer correct to 3 significant figures.
Breadth = Area / Length
Breadth to be the least, then Area must be the least and Length the highest.
So Area = 331.5 m2 and Length = 20.4 m.
And you can work out the Breadth.
