The formula for area of rectangle is breath*length. It is given that l/b=7/5
From that l=7/5*bLength decreases by 5 and breath increases by now the new area will be A=(l-5)*(b+2)sub the value of l above equation then, A=(7/5b-5)(b+2)
The given new area s 65sqkm.sub area n above eqn form the equation get the value of b and l.b=8.147l=11.4056
