# What is the increase in the area of a rectangle if one of its side increases by 25\%?

## What is the increase in the area of a rectangle if one of its side increases by 25\%?

New Area =(6/5x × 6/5y)m2=(36/25xy)m2. Hence, Increase \% =(11/25xy × 1/xy × 100)\%= 44\%.

**What is the percentage increase in area of a rectangle if its length is increased by 20\%?**

Increase in the area of the rectangle is 44\%. After 20\% increase in Length and Breadth, (120/100*L)*(120/100*B) = 144/100*LB . Hence, increase in area = 144/100*LB – LB = 44/100*LB = 44\% Ans.

**What is the percentage increase in the area of a rectangle if each of the side is increased by 20\%?**

The percentage increase in the area of a rectangle, if each of its side is increased by 20\% is. 40\%

### How much will the area increase if each side of rectangle is increased by 20 \%?

⇒ Percentage increase in area = 0.44×100. ⇒ Percentage increase in area = 44. So, we have found the percentage increase in area as 44\%.

**How much should the length of a rectangle decrease with increasing breadth?**

If area remains constant after 1/25 part increase in breadth, length should decrease by 1/26 or 3.85\% The length of a rectangle is increased by 50 percent. By what percent should the breadth be decreased to maintain the same area?

**What is the distance around a rectangle called?**

The distance around a rectangle is called the perimeter of the rectangle. It is usually denoted by P P. To find the perimeter of rectangle we add the lengths of its sides. Thus, the perimeter of a rectangle with the length of a a and the width of b b is

## What is the formula to find the area of a rectangle?

A = length × width = a × b A = length × width = a × b. In other words, the area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width. The perimeter is measured in units such as centimeters, meters, kilometers, inches, feet, yards, and miles.

**How do you find the length of the diagonal of a rectangle?**

If we know side lengths of the rectangle, it is easy to calculate the length of the diagonal using the Pythagorean Theorem. A diagonal divides a rectangle into two right triangles. By applying the Pythagorean Theorem to ΔABC Δ A B C, we get
