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

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.

    The subscription fee to a club for men and women are in the ratio 4:3. Two men and five women pay a total sum of $460. What is the subscription fee for each man?

    Let m represent the subscription rate for a man, and w the subscription rate for a woman.
    m/w=4/3, or m=(4/3)w.
    2 men and 5 women paid 460. Thus
    Substitute (4/3)w for m, in 2m+5w=460.
    This gives an equation in the unknown w. Solve for w
    2(4/3)w +5w=460 or (23/3)w=460. Answer is w=60
    Use this value in the relation m=(4/3)w to get m=80.
    Check m/w=80/60=4/3

    The Rectangular pond at a zoo is 18 m long 12 m wide. The owner of the zoo wants to double the area of the pond by increasing the length and the width by the same amount. By how much should the length and...

    The current area of the pond is 18m by 12 m, so, if A is the current area, A=18*12
    Twice the area would be 2A and it is to be accomplished by adding the same amount, say x, to both dimensions. In symbols, that is:
    2A = (18+x) * (12+x)
    But we know A is 18*12, so
    2(18*12) = (18+x) * (12+x) ; doing the arithmetic
    432 = (18+x) * (12+x) ; doing the multiplication using FOIL (first, outside, inside, last)
    432 = 18*12 + 18x +12x + x*x ; simplying
    432 = 216 + 30x + x*x ; or
    0 = -216 + 30x + x*x : or
    x*x + 30x -216 = 0 ; using the quadratic equation (or factoring)
    (x-6) (x+36) = 0
    This has two solutions, 6 and (-36). Since a negative number doesn't make sense in this case, the answer is to add 6m to each side.

    Check (18+6) (12+6) = ?
    24 * 18 = ?
    432 , which is indeed twice the original area of 216 ( = 18*12)

    Total population 5000,10% increase in men and 15% increase in women, now population become 5600,what were number of men ??/

    use simultaneous equations, with x = # of men and y = # of women:
    x + y = 5000 --> convert to x = 5000 - y 1.1x + 1.15y = 5600
    1.1 (5000 - y) + 1.15y = 5600 5500 - 1.1y + 1.15y = 5600 .05y = 100 y = 2000 plug y = 2000 into x + y = 5000
    therefore x = 3000
