Answer: The length of rectangle is 15 cm and width is 20 cmStep-by-step explanation:As according to question

Let the width of rectangle = x cm

Length of rectangle =(x- 5) cm

Area of rectangle is 300 cm²

As we know Area of rectangle is given by

Therefore either (x-20)= 0 or (x+15)=0

i.e. either x= 20 or x = -15

Now width can not be negative

Therefore it cant be -15

Hence the width is 20 cm

Length = x- 5 = 20-5 = 15 cm

Hence the length of rectangle is 15 cm and width is 20 cm
