What is the perimeter, in meters, of a rectangular playground 24 meters wide that has the same area as a rectangular playground 64 meters long and 48
meters wide?

 A 112
 B 152
 C 224
 D 256
 E 304

Area of second playground = length * width = 64*48 = 3072

Given Area of first plaground = area of second playground = 3072

length * width = 3072

length * 24 = 3072

length = 128

perimeter of first plaground = 2* length + 2* width = 2*128 + 2*24 = 256 + 48 = 304

Option E.
