Let x stand for one integer and 2x + 5 stand for the other.

The formula you would work with would be:

x(2x+5) = 52

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

In a trapezoid, the smaller base is 3 more than the height, the larger base is 5 less than 3 times the height, and the area of the trapezoid is 45 square centimeters. Use an algebraic solution to find the height, in centimeters, of the trapezoid.

The height of the trapezoid is centimeters.
