A wire is bent in the form of a rectangle having length twice the breadth. The same wire is bent in the form of a circle. It was found that the area of the circle is greater than that of the rectangle by 104.5cm2. Find the length of the wire.

Let the breadth of the rectangle be “b”.

The length of the rectangle is twice the breadth, so it’s “2b”.

The perimeter of the rectangle is 2x(b+2b) =6b.

The wire bent in the form of a circle also has a circumference of 6b.

Let “r” be the radius of the circle, that is,

2πr=6b, implies, r= 6b/2π

The area of the rectangle is 2b², and the area of the circle is 9b².

So, according to the question, we have,

Area of the circle – Area of the rectangle = 104.5

9b² – 2b² = 104.5

7b² = 104.5

b² = 104.5 / 7

b² = 14.93

b ≈ √14.93 = 3.86

The total length of the wire used is equal to the perimeter of the rectangle:

Total length of wire = 6b
= 6 × 3.86
= 23.16

Therefore, the length of the wire is approximately 23.16 cm.
