Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my work so far: 4r=r^2+5 r^24r+5=0 then I am supposed to factor? I cannot figure out how to factor this! I literally tried every possible way.. :( someone please help me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Are we reading it correctly? Area = Perimeter + 5 how do we define area and perimeter of a square ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I believe so.. And im not sure, I honestly just follow the practice problems along with the actual problem to solve it. :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1area, is 5 more than perimeter area = perimeter + 5 area = r^2, and perimeter is 4r youre initial setup seems flawed to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, like i said I was just following the practice problem so the way I set it up is probably wrong. how would you set it up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the way i have already set it up ... area = perimeter + 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the area of a square is 5 more than its perimeter ^^^ = ^ ^^^ ^^^^^^^ r^2 = 4r + 5 area = perimeter + 5  but you setup as: 4r = r^2 + 5 perimeter = area + 5  solving it is just finding the solutions to the quadratic, factor if you can (it most likely factorable)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you did fine with the factoring

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so it would solve to be r=1, and r=5...so it would be 5 units?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15 is the workable length, 1 is just a extra value that doesnt fit with the expected domain and can be ignored 5 is fine
