The sides of an rectangle was 5cm by 9cm. When both dimension were increased by an equal amounts the area of the rectangle increased by 120 cm^2 find the dimensions of the new rectangle.

    New rectangle has area of
    (9+x)(5+x)

    so ...

    (9+x)(5+x) - 45 = 120
    x^2 + 14x - 120 = 0
    (x + 20)(x-6) = 0
    x = -20 (silly) or x = 6

    new rectangel is 11 by 15

    check:
    new rect. = 11x15 = 165
    old rect. = 5x9 = 45

    increase = 165-45 = 120 Checks!
