2X^2+3X-90=0
Discriminant: (3)^2-4(2)(-90)=729=(27)^2
Two roots
X_1=(1/4)*(-3+27)=6
X-2=(1/4)*(-3-27) =-(15/2), negative
Since the width must be positive, reject the negative root and keep X_1=6
Width =6
Length=2(6)+3=15

Check 6*(15)=90. Checks OK

How do you find the a parallelogram with a base twice as long as the height and an area. Less than 60 inches

area = length x width If you assign the height (width) as X then the base (Length) would then be 2X. So if you go
50 = X x 2X
50 = 2X squared
25 = X squared
5 = X
So your height is 5 and the base is 10

The length, l, of a rectangle is 5/2 its width, w. The length, l, of the rectangle is 10 inches. What is the perimeter of the rectangle? What Iis the area of the rectangle, in sauare inches?

We are given the following data:

length = 5/2 * width
length = 10 inWe know through the transitive

property of equality that the following must be true:

5/2 * width = 10 in

We then solve this equation algebraically for width:

width = (10 in) * 2/5
width = 4 in

The perimeter of the rectangle is given by substituting our known values of length and width into the following general equation:

Perimeter = 2 * length + 2 * width
Perimeter = 2(10 in) + 2(4 in) = 28 in

In a similar fashion, we substitute these known values into the general equation for the area of the rectangle to solve for the same:

Area = length * width
Area = (10 in)(4 in)=40 in^2

How do you solve a rectangle is eight inches longer than its width. find the dimensions of the rectangle if the perimeter is 60 cm

The rectangle is 11cm by 19cm.

The perimeter is 60, so the width and length must add to 30. The length is 8 more than the width, or width+width+8=30. Solve that for width, then you can calculate the length based on the width.

If this is homework, be sure to show your work.

Area of rectangle is 4122cm2 .width of rectangle is 3cm.how do i find the length of it

Area = length X width, and you know the area and the width. So,

4122 sq cm = length X 3 cm

length = 4122 sq cm / 3 cm

length = 1374 cm

(That is one long, skinny rectangle, isn't it?)

A rectan Dear Madam Please look at the math questions below. Please help me solve the questions Question 1 : A rectangular tablecloth is 2.5 m long. Trim is to be sewn around the perimeter of the cloth...

1. Well this one is pretty simple. Since you are not supposed to trim the length trim the width instead.
to make the perimeter 0.4 m shorter cut the cloth by 0.2 m width the picture will make it clear.

2. let the length of rectangle be x cm
now original perimeter = 2(x+20) cm

new length = x-30 cm
breadth remains same = 20 cm
new perimeter = 2(x-30+20) cm = 2(x-10) cm

According to question

new perimeter = old perimeter /2
2(x-10) = 2(x+20) /2
2x -20 = x + 20
x = 40 cm

hence length of longer side 40 cm.

If you know about area formulas of class 8 and 9,please solve my question?there is a circle.in the between of the circle,there is a rectangle of dimension 4cm and 3cm.if the rectangle will cut out what...

The diameter of the circle is the diagonal of the rectangle use Pythagoras this rectangle is a made from two 3,4,5 triangles, so the diameter is 5cm, the radius will be 2.5cm don't forget the BODMAS ordering rule (Brackets of Division Multiplication Addition and Subtraction) Also rounding to 2 decimal places. This solution is based on all four corners of the rectangle touching the circumference of the circle.

Area of a circle is P (22/7) i x Radius (squared ^2) ====> 22/7 x 2.5cm ^ 2 ====> 22/7 x 6.25cm

TOTAL AREA of CIRCLE = 19.64 cm^2

Area of the rectangle is length x width ====> 4 cm x 3 cm

TOTAL AREA of RECTANGLE = 12 cm ^2

The remaining portion is the circle area minus the rectangle 19.64-12 = 7.64 cm^2

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
