The area in square meters for a triangular sail is given by A(x) = x2 + 5x + 6. x = (5)
the height of the sail is x+3 is the length of the base x+2?

This question has typos. It does not make sense as typed.

math  maybe this is right  mason, Monday, February 23, 2009 at 5:35pm
If the area is x^2+5x+6m^2 and we know the area is a square which is base times height, we can factor the equation so that it comes out to (x+3)(x+2)since the height is x+3 then we know the base is x+2. (is this correct)

math  see if correct  Damon, Monday, February 23, 2009 at 6:33pm
It would be correct for a rectangle, not fo a square.
