    Answer: (3) 49 m
    Explanation:-
    Let the width of the rectangle = X m
    The side of a square = 84 m
    Formula-
    The area of a square = side x side

    Then the area of the square = 84 x 84
    = 7056

    The area of the square = the area of the rectangle    (According to question)
    Then,  144 x X = 7056                           (length of the rectangle = 144, Given in the question)
    X = 7056/144
    X = 49 m
    Hence, the width of the rectangle is 49 m.
