### Discussion :: Area

1.  The area of a rectangle is equal to the area of right-angles triangle. What is the length of the rectangle?

I. The base of the triangle is 40 cm.

II. The height of the triangle is 50 cm.

2.  A. I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer B. II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer C. Either I or II alone sufficient to answer D. Both I and II are not sufficient to answer E. Both I and II are necessary to answer

Explanation :

Given: Area of rectangle = Area of a right-angles triangle.

l x b =$$\frac { 1 } { 2 }$$xBxH

I gives, B = 40 cm.

II gives, H = 50 cm.

Thus, to find l, we need b also, which is not given.

Given data is not sufficient to give the answer.
