  1. L = 3B + 10

    L = 2B

    Substitute 3B+10 for L.

    (3B+10-50) = 2B

    Solve for B, then L.

  2. Width(breadth) = W.
    Length = 3w + 10.

    Length = 3w+10 - 50 = 3w - 40.
    Width = w + 4.
    3w - 40 = 2(w + 4).
    W = 48 m.
    Width = w + 4 = 48 + 4 = 52 m.
    Length = 2 * 52 = 104 m.
