Let x= width Let y = length y = 8 + x Area = length x width A = (8+x)(x) 65 = (8+x)(x) 65 = 8x+x^2 0 = x^2 + 8x -65 I don't think it works out perfectly but try solving that

would it be (x+13)(x-5) or no?

Yes! Haha I didnt think it'd be a perfect polynomial but it does work out! The width is 5 (since the width cant be negative) and then the length is 13.
