Let us assume the width of the rectangular sports field = x meters Then The length of the rectangular sports field is = 3x Perimeter of the rectangular sports field = 880 meters Then Perimeter of the rectangular field = 2(Length + Width) 880 = 2(x +3x) 880 = 2 * 4x 880 = 8x x = 880/8   = 110 meters So Width of the rectangular field = 110 meters Length of the rectangular field = 3x                                                  = 3 * 110 meters                                                  = 330 meters Now Area of the rectangular field = Length * Width                                              = 110 * 330 square meters                                              = 36300 square meters. So the area of the rectangular field comes out to be equal to 36300 square meters.
