- math - maybe this is right -
**mason**, Monday, February 23, 2009 at 5:35pmIf 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 6:33pmIt would be correct for a rectangle, not fo a square.
