    Take the breadth as x, as its the smallest value- - (1)

    Length is 2 more than 5 times the breadth- - (2)

    perimeter=160m

    l=2+5x

    b=x

    Perimeter=2 (l+b)

    2 (2+5x+x)

    =2 (2+6x)

    Opening the brackets

    =4+12x

    4+12x=160

    12x=160-4

    x=156/12

    =13

    Therefore, by substituting the value of x

    l=2+5*13=67m

    b=13m
