The area of a rectangle plot is 460 square metres. If the length is 15% more than the breadth, what is the breadth of the plot?


Let the breadth of plot be x 
the length will be 15x/100 more that is -:  x+ 15x/100
                                                       =   23x/20
now area=lb
             :(x)(23x/20) =460 (given)
solving the equation we get 
x= 20m
hence the breadth is  20m
