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

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?
