so,

2(x+ 2x/3) = 180

Solving the equation,

x=54

SO length = 54 m

and breadth = 36 m

The Brainliest Answer!

Let the width of the rectangle be (2/3) of x i.e. (2/3)x.

As we know , The perimeter of the rectangle is calculated by the formula [ 2(length +width) ] and as given in the data it is 180 metres.

Now equate everything,

2(2/3x +x) =180

2/3x +x =180/2

2/3x +x = 90

Now take x as a common variable on the L.H.S.

x(2/3 +1) =90

Add 2/3 and 1 on the L.H.S,

x(5/3) = 90

x = 90 / (5/3)

x = 90 * 3/5 x = 54

Therefore, the length of the rectangle is 54 metres and the width is 36 metres(2/3 of 54) Hope u got it! I think I'm right! It's just a guess!!
