Hmm, let me think for a moment. I'll let you know whether or not I can figure it out.

Thank you (:

So, I'm just going to get down what I know while I'm trying to solve, so anything that I type is me just trying to figure it out, and should not be taken as an answer to your question.

It seems to be a rectangle. If that's the case, we could equate the top and bottom sides first to get our y-value: \[y + 3 = 2y - 4\]\[7 = y\] Then, we could plug this y-value to the length and width equations to get our dimensions for its area: \[2(7) + 4 = 18\]\[(7) + 3 = 10\]\[L \times W = 18 \times 10\] The rectangular area is 18 units by 10 units.

It says square on the test..

You left out that important detail. (sigh)

The main question says how do I solve the square !! lmao

If it's a square like you said, then we equate two perpendicular sides: \[y + 3 = 2y + 4\]\[-1 = y\] Then we plug this y-value back into one of the three equations to get our dimensions: \[(-1) + 3 = 2\] \[L \times W = 2 \times 2 = 2^{2}\] Our square is 2 units by 2 units.

Please specify geometrical shapes in the future. Otherwise, you may get reported.

@badlandsarah The figure is not a square, unless there are typos in your figure. If it is a square, 2y+4=2y-4 after cancelling y, 4=-4 which is absurd. I think your best bet is to talk to show that it is absurd as a square, and solve it as a rectangle. THEN report to your teacher about the question.

See, that was part of my problem. I couldn't figure it out as a square.
