  1. ❍ Let’s say, that the breadth of the floor be x and the length of the floor is 20m more than it’s breadth, therefore, the length be (x + 20) respectively.

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    [tex]\star\;\boxed{\pink{\sf{Perimeter\;_{(rectangle)}=2(Length+Breadth)}}}[/tex]

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Therefore,

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    [tex]:\implies\sf{2[(x+20)+x]=280}\\\\\\\\:\implies\sf{2(2x+20)=280}\\\\\\\\:\implies\sf{4x+40=280}\\\\\\\\:\implies\sf{4x=280-40}\\\\\\\\:\implies\sf{4x=240}\\\\\\\\:\implies\sf{x=\cancel{\dfrac{240}{4}}}\\\\\\\\:\implies\underline{\boxed{\frak{\purple{x=60\;m}}}}{\;\bigstar}[/tex]

    Hence,

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    • Length of the floor = (x + 20) = (60 + 20) = 80m
    • Breadth of the floor = x = 60m

    [tex]\therefore\;{\underline{\sf{Hence,\;its\;length\;is\;{\textsf{\textbf{80\;m}}}}.}}[/tex]
