Ref: R6127

## Suggestion

Find the dimensions of the rectangle whose perimeter is $\quantity{36}{m}$ and which is such that the square of the length of the diagonal is $\quantity{170}{m^2}$.

Could we draw a helpful picture of the rectangle, with the two side lengths as $x$ and $y$?

Can we use the information in the question to write down two equations in $x$ and $y$?
