Find the lengths of the sides of rectangle if perimeter is 7,4 m and area is 3m2.

2. Relevant equations

S= 2a+2b and P=ab

3. The attempt at a solution

So i tried getting a form P --> a=P/b and then subsstituting in perimeter formula a with P/b ---> S=2P/b+2b but i am stuck here.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
