Let the breadth of the rectangular park = x metres

Therefore, length of the rectangular park = (x+ 40) metres.

So, area of the rectangular park = (x + 40) ∙ x square metres

According to the problem we get,

(x + 40) ∙ x = 2304

or, x^2 + 40x = 2304

or, x2 + 40x - 2304 = 0 .................... (i)

OR,

Let the length of the rectangular park = x metres

Therefore, the breadth of the rectangular park =(x - 40) metres

Area of the rectangular park = x(x - 40) square metres

According to the problem we get,

x(x - 40) = 2304

or,x2 - 40x - 2304 = 0 .................... (ii)

Both of (i) and (ii) are quadratic equations.

**Let the breadth of the rectangular park be 'x' mts.**

**⇒**** length of the rectangular park = (x+ 40) mts.**

**∴**** area of the rectangular park = length x breadth**

** = (x + 40) ∙ x m****²**

**According to the problem,**

**(x + 40) ∙ x = 2304**

**⇒ x² + 40x = 2304**

**⇒x****²**** + 40x - 2304 = 0 **

** (OR)**

**Let the length of the rectangular park be 'x' mts.**

**∴**** The breadth of the rectangular park =(x - 40) mts**

**Area of the rectangular park = x(x - 40) m²**

**According to the problem,**

**x(x - 40) = 2304**

**⇒****x****²**** - 40x - 2304 = 0.**
