Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I honestly have no idea lol, that is why I tagged you in it, I've never done this equation before.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so set up an equation for this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would I start that

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets use w to represent the unknown

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do you find the length of a rectangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i meant to write area. How do you find the area of a rectangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we called the width w. the question says the length is 3 feet more than twice the width. what would you have to do to W to get that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put it into a expression maybe?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like a algebraic expression

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0something around there

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it says the length is twice the width

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we called width w. so we have 2w

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it also says that it's 3 feet more than that. what would you add to 2w to represent that?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that represents our length. What are you missing from that equation?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember area= L x W

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we're missing the width right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, what does the equation look like?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it going to be the same as the length? the 2w?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure :l im very slow haha, I hate math

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we started by saying that w is the width

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we multiplied that by 2 and added 3 to represent the length

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was going to say we are going to plug in w but there is nothing to plug in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya, do you understand how i got that equation though?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 54=5, and yes I understand now how you got the equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't really solve it then? because you add like terms right so 2+3 is 5 and then the 54 is just there.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply this out (2w+3)w

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, do you remember how to expand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1433022042596:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only reason why I say that is because sometimes the w could be used as a 1 but I could be wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now what's w times 3?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, so we have 2w^2 + 3w = 54

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it looks like we have to factor this

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so move everything to one side of the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so is the width 6 or 9/2?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it possible to have a negative width?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what was the other value you got

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the width is 9/2 and the length is 6?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says that the length is twice the width plus 3 more

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what should the length be?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, what's 9/2 times 12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you very much I appreciate you taking the time to work with me.
