### Question Asked by a Student from EXXAMM.com Team

** Q 2482767637. ** A big rectangular plot of area `4320 m^2` is divided into

`3` square shaped smaller plots by fencing parallel to

the smaller side of the plot. However some area of

land was still left as a square could not be formed. So,

`3` more square shaped plots were formed by fencing

parallel to the longer side of the original plot such

that no area of the plot was left surplus. What are the

dimensions of the original plot?
