MEDAL AND FAN
Can someone work through this with me and explain it please?
The area of a rectangular piece of land is 280 square meters. If the length of the land was 5 meters less and the width was 1 meter more, the shape of the land would be a square.
Part A: Write an equation to find the width (x) of the land. Show the steps of your work.
Part B: What is the width of the land in meters? Show the steps of your work.

Okay you would first have to set up 2 equations
the equation for the area of a rectangle and an equation to set the length and width equal to each other given the variables.
So your two equations would be
\[l-5=w+1 \] *we know this because the sides of a square are equal so we would have to set the width and length equal to each other under the given conditions.
