Homework Help: PRE-CALC

Posted by Muffy on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 10:01pm.

A large painting in the style of Rubens is 3 feet longer than it is wide. If the wooden frame is 12 in wide and the area of the picture frame is 208 ft^2, find the dimensions of the painting.

So I know the width would be x and the length would be x+3

if I do 12x=208, I get 17.3333

I'm really not sure where to go with this can you please help?
