Let x = the width of the women's court. Then 2x is the length of the women's court.
the area of the womens court is x times 2x = 2x^2

the length of the mens court is 4 ft longer than the women's or 2x + 4
The width of the men's court is 5 ft wider than the womwn's or x + 5

The are of the mens court is 650 square feet larger that the womens so we have to add 650 to the area of the womens court so the men's and women's will be equal

Now we have area of the women's court = area of the men's court

2x^2 + 650 = (x + 5) (2x + 4) = 2x^2 + 14x + 20

The x^2 cancel out and we are left with 14X + 20 + 650 solving for x we get x = 45

Plugging x back into the length and width equations we get the length is 94 and the width is 50

Hope this helped

Good luck Loringh

The ratio of men to women on a bus is 4:5 Nobody gets off the bus. 18 more women get on. The ratio of men to women is now 1:2 How many men are on the bus?

m = men
w = women

equation 1
m/w = 4/5
w(m/w) = w(4/5)
m = 4/5w
5(m) = 5(4/5w)
5m = 4w
w = 5/4m
equation 2
m/(w + 18) = 1/2
(w + 18)(m/w + 18) = (w + 18)(1/2)
m = w/2 + 9
2m = w + 18
w = 2m - 18

Substitute equation in equation 2
w = 5/4m
5/4m = 2m -18
4(5/4m) = 4(2m-18)
5m = 8m - 72 multiply by -1
3m = 72
m = 24
solve for w
w = 5/4m
w = 5(24)/4
w = 5 * 6
w = 30 m = 24

Where can i find out what men secretly want in a women?

This is a difficult question to answer, because different men want different things. I look for a great personality, a proportionate body with a waist, great legs, above average size chest area (Fixya didn't like the word I used despite being respectful), and a tiger in the bedroom. Other may differ. Here is some insight though.
