# The ratio of the length to its width of a park is 5:2. If the width of the park is 14 m, what is its length?

**Given:**

Ratio of length to width of park = 5 : 2.

Width = 14 m

**To do:**

Length =?

**Solution:**

Length and width are in proportion,

$\frac{5}{2}=\frac{length}{breadth}$

$\frac{5}{2}=\frac{length}{14}$

On cross multiplication,

$14 \times 5 = 2 \times length$

$70 = 2 \times length$

$\frac{70}{2}=length$

Length = 35 m

**The length of the park is 35 m.**
