L - 5 = W + 1 Solve for L
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
and then you plug that into \(\sf L \times W = 280\) and you set it equal to 0 and you'll have a quadratic equation that you'll need to solve.

@TheSmartOne so x+1 =y-5. X+6=y whats next
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
lets use L and W because they stand for length and width and it will make it easier for us :)
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
so we have L = W+6 Plug that into \(\sf\Large L \times W = 280\) so we get \(\sf\Large (w+6)w=280\)
