Homework Help: math

Posted by tyrik on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 2:27pm.

a painting is 3 inches longer than it is wide. it is set in a rectangular border that is 2 inches wider than the painting on each side. if the area of the border is 100in^2 what are the dimensions of the painting?

Here is a problem I worked for Jason that is almost the same. See if this won't do it.
