# The area of a rectangular playground is 300 sq m. If the breadth of the field is 15 m, find the length of the field.

 A) 20 m B) 11 m C) 25 m D) 10 m

 A) 20 m

Description for Correct answer:
According to the question.

$$\Large L\times B$$=Area

=> $$\Large L\times 15$$=300

[L = length and B = breadth]

L= $$\Large \frac{300}{15}$$=20m
