Answer:l=54m

r=36m

Step-by-step explanation:let the length of the rectangle be

xmthus ,width of the rectangle =2

x/3given,

perimeter of the rectangle is 180

=2(x+2x/3)=180

=2(3

x+2x/3)=180=2(5x)=180*3[bycrossmultiplication]=10x=540x=54now,widthoftherectangle=2x/3=2*54/3=36mhencethelengthoftherectanglein54m,andbreadthoftherectangleis36mhopeithelpsLet the length of the rectangle be x,

Perimeter = 2(l+b)

180= 2(x+)

Length is 135 m.

Breadth = = 45m

So the dimensions are 135m and 45m.
