Solution

## The correct option is A length = 25 meters and breadth = 20 meters Given, the ratio of breadth and length of a rectangle is 4:5 and area = 500 m2. ∴ Let the breadth be 4x meters and length be 5x meters. ∵ Area of a rectangle = length × breadth ∴ 5x × 4x = 500 m2 ⇒ 20x2 = 500 ⇒ x2 = 25 ⇒ x = 5 m ∴ length = 5x = 25 meters and breadth = 4x = 20 meters
