Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"length is 30 yards longer than its width. " means that L = 30 + W so length = 30 + W and width = W, that takes care of #1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for #2, we let length*width = area so W(W+30) = 8800 solve for W

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, think carefully our two factors must add to 30 and multiply to get 8800

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1W^2+30W8800 = (W+110)(W80), know where to go from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, now remember that W is width, and width must be positive so W = 80
