it didnt work but its a rectangle and the first quarter of it is 2x the other is 3x+2 and it wants me to find the perimeter
sorry, that information is not enough for me.
Bailey I guess the sides of the rectangle are 2x and 3x + 2 ?
If so 170 = (2x)(3x + 2)
Which gives 170 = 6x^2 + 4x
Convert to a quadratic equation
6x^2 + 4x - 170 = 0
which will give solutions of x as 5 or -5.6666
disregard the negative solution as you are looking at a measured length
Answer x = 5
That definetly makes sense, how could I not think of that :D
It happens to us all from time to time :)
...so if x = 5 the perimeter is 2(2*5) + 2([3*5] + 2)
Hence perimeter is 20 + 34 = 54 feet
Baily you should check one of my previous posts I did for you I found an error :(
