Answer:

  • The diagonal of a rectangular field is 60 metres more than the shorter side.
  • The longer side is 30 metres more than the shorter side.

  • The sides of the field

We have,

Long side of rectangular field is 60 meters more then the shorter side.

Let the longer side will be (y+30)mtr.

And the length of the diagonal will be (y+60) mtr.

Now, According to given question.

Using Pythagoras theorem,

(Diagonal)^2 =(shorterside)^2 +(longerside)^2

If,

y+30=0

y=−30(notpossible)

If,

y−90=0

y=90

So, the length of shorter side =y−30=90−39=60

Longer side 90+30=120

Hence,the answer is 90 meters and 120 meters.❣Hope this helps you✌
