the length of a rectangle is.....the area is of the rectangle is........etc. etc..... find the dimensions of the --triangle--. whaaa..??
oops, sorry, meant rectangle
it helps to draw a picture and label the side lengths as variables:
|dw:1331003251507:dw|
|dw:1331004873812:dw| less than means switch the order
A=LW 310=(3x-1)x trust me on this one!!! solve for x
