Homework Help: Algebra 1

Posted by Meloney on Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at 5:57pm.

A design calls for a rectangular garden with an area of 180 square feet. If the length is to be 3 feet more than the width, set up an equation and solve that equation to find the dimensions of the garden.

I drew a sketch and labeled the width "w" and the length "w+3"

my equation was:

w(w+3)=180

simplified and split the middle term:

w^2+15w-12w-180=0

should I group again?
thanks, meloney
