\[L=w+3\] \[LW=40\] \[(W+3)W=40\] \[W^2+3 W=40\] \[W^2+3W-40=0\] \[(W-5)(W+8)=40\] \[W=5\]or \[W=-8\] so W=5
and sorry what is the length is the width is 5?
W = Width L = Length = W+3 A = (L)(W) 40 = (W+3)(W) 40 = W^2+3W W^2+3W-40 = 0 (W+8)(W-5) = 0 W = -8 W = 5 Width must equal 5 and not -8 since a rectangle can't have a negative measurement L = W+3 = 5+3 = 8 Therefore, W = Width = 5 and L = Length = 8
