## anonymous one year ago A rectangular garden with a width of 42 feet has an area of 2,814 square feet. What is the length of the garden?

The formula for the area of a rectangle is $$Area = l \times w$$.

Plug in what we know into the formula: $$Area = l \times w$$ We have: Width = 42 ft Area = 2814 sqft Plug them into the equation: $$2814 = l \times 42$$ Solve for the length: Divide 42 to both sides: $$\dfrac{2814}{42} = \dfrac{l \times 42}{42}$$ |dw:1412773402268:dw| The 42's at the right cancel out, leaving you with $$l$$ by itself. Now divide 2814/42. $$l = 67$$
