# What is the solution of Two sides of a rectangle differ by 3.5 cm find the dimensions of the rectangle if its perimeter is 67 cm?

Suppose the shorter side is x cm.Then the longer side is x + 3.5 cm.

Therefore the perimeter is 2*(x + x + 3.5) = 4x + 7 cm.

Now 4x + 7 = 67 so that 4x = 60 and x = 15

and then x + 3.5 = 18.5

Therefore the sides of the rectangles are 15 cm and 18.5 cm.

### How does the solution to an inequality differ from the solution to an equation?

The solution to an inequality generally is a region with one more dimension. If the inequality/equation is of the form x < a or x = a then the solution to the inequality is the 1 dimensional line segment while the solution to the equality is a point which has no dimensions. If the inequality/equation is in 2 dimensions, the solution to the inequality is an area whereas the solution to the equality is a…

### Why do the areas of different shapes differ even if their perimeter is same?

A rectangle that's 7 x 1 inches has a perimeter of 16 inches, and its area is 7 square inches. A rectangle that's 5 x 3 inches also has a perimeter of 16 inches, but its area is 15 square inches. A rectangle that's 6 x 2 inches also has a perimeter of 16 inches, but its area is 12 square inches. A square that's 4 inches on each side also has a perimeter of…

### What are all the possible dimensions of a rectangle that has a perimeter of 18 cm?

If you are looking for dimension in whole numbers only, and understanding that rectangles must have opposing sides equal and 4 right angles: The answer to your question is most easily determined by assigning the dimension of 1cm (the smallest possible whole unit) to two of the sides. This means that the other two sides must each be 8cm. Because 18-1-1=16. 16/2 = 8. So the dimensions of the first rectangle would be 1cmX8cm. If…

### How is a rectangle not a square?

a rectangle is not a square by a square having parallel sides for all but the rectangle only has one pair of parallel sides * * * * * Actually, a rectangle has two pairs of parallel sides - the same as a square. Where they differ is that a rectangle has two pairs of sides of equal length, but each pair is different from the other. In a square, all four sides are of…

### How does a solution differ from a compound?

a solution is a mixture of components mixed in any ratio and not mixed chemically but in a compound components are mixed in fixed ratio and they are mixed chemically. solution's components can be separated by physical means but not the compound'components can be separated by a chemical process. example of a solution- sugar solution example of a compound- water

### How does torque differ from force?

The term "torque" is used specifically for circular motion. For a difference, torque and force have different dimensions. Torque has the dimensions of force x distance. This is because you can increase the torque both by applying more force, or by increasing distance from the axis of rotation, of the position where the force is applied.
