let x be the breadth

then length is x+20

so, 2(l+b)= perimeter of floor

now, 2(x+20+x)=280

2x+20=140

2x=120

x=60

therefore length is x+20= 60+20=80

2. ❍ 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.

$$\star\;\boxed{\pink{\sf{Perimeter\;_{(rectangle)}=2(Length+Breadth)}}}$$

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Therefore,

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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

Hence,

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

$$\therefore\;{\underline{\sf{Hence,\;its\;length\;is\;{\textsf{\textbf{80\;m}}}}.}}$$
