# If in a rectangular field the length is increased by 50% and breadth by 20% , its area will become

- 5/9 times
- 5/3 time
- 9/5 times
- 3 times

**Ans. 9/5 times**

**Solution-**

Let be the length of a rectangle field = X

And breadth of a rectangle field = Y

Area of rectangle =X

50% of length = X x 50/100 = X/2

New length is = X + X/2 = 3X/2

20% of breadth = Y x 20/100 = Y/5

New breadth is = Y + Y/5 = 6Y/5

New Area of rectangle = 3X/2 x 6Y/5

=** 9/5 XY **
