if length of a rectangle is incr by 20% and width is decr by 20% then area ..

Answer / zammil

we know,
area=b*h
b gets increased by 20% i.e (b+0.20b)
h gets decreased by 20% i.e (h-0.20h)

rewriting the equation(area=b*h),

area=(b+0.20b)*(h-0.20h)
area=b(1+0.20)*h(1-0.20)
area=b(1.20)*h(0.80)
area=b*h*(1.20)*(0.80)
area=b*h*(0.96)

i.e new area=0.96 times the original area
if 100% was the original area,it has decreased to 96%
so,100%-96%= 4%
