Chapter 5: Algebra... Different "Faces" of Algebra (III)

The perimeter of a rectangle is (6x + 5y) cm.
Suggest 2 possible dimensions of the rectangle.

e.g.
Length of rectangle = 2x + 2y cm
Breadth of rectangle = x + 0.5y cm
Check:
Perimeter = 2 (2x + 2y) + 2 (x + 0.5y) cm
= 4x + 4y + 2x + y cm
= 6x + 5y cm

  1. Length : 2x+1y
    Breadth : 1.5y + x
    Check :
    Perimeter = 2(2x+1y) + 2 (x + 1.5y)
    = 4x + 2y + 2x + 3y
    =6x + 5y
