I am getting 34.25cm

- Algebra I need the formula not the answer -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 7:18pmIf you typed the question correctly, then the answer is obvious

(x+8)^2 = 169^2

then x+8 = 169

and x=161

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 7:19pmThe square root of 169 is 13, which is the lengthened measure of each side. Subtract 8 from 13 to find the original length of each side.

**Damon**, Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 7:20pmYou must have a typo. I think you mean the area is 169 cm^2

(S+8)^2 = 169

for which I get 5 cm

However if it really is as you wrote it

then

(S+8)2 = 28561

S + 8 = 169

S = 161
