Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets use L and W because they stand for length and width and it will make it easier for us :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we have L = W+6 Plug that into \(\sf\Large L \times W = 280\) so we get \(\sf\Large (w+6)w=280\)
