1 Answer

  • Answer:

    [tex]\dfrac{3}{5}[/tex] miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A rectangular plot of land.

    Area of rectangular plot, A = [tex]\dfrac{9}{10}[/tex] square mile

    The length of plot, L=[tex]\frac{3}{2}[/tex] miles

    Let width of plot be w miles

    Formula:

    Area of rectangle, A = L × W

                         [tex]\dfrac{9}{10}=\dfrac{3}{2}\times w[/tex]

                         [tex]w=\dfrac{2}{3}\times \dfrac{9}{10}[/tex]

                         [tex]w=\dfrac{3}{5}[/tex] miles

    Hence, The width of the rectangular plot is [tex]\dfrac{3}{5}[/tex] miles
