## kuvyojhmoob one year ago A rectangular plot of ground having dimensions 29 ft by 30 ft is surrounded by a walk of uniform width. If the area of the walk is 536 ft2, what is its width?

1. campbell_st

let the uniform width be x |dw:1441392510195:dw| so the area of the whole thing plot and path is $(2x + 30)(2x + 29) = 29 \times 30 + 536$ you have a quadratic equation that will allow you to solve for x $4x^2 + 118x + 870 = 1406$ hope it helps
