The width would be? The length would be?

I am not sure if I am to take 242 and sqrt it to give me 58,564 and then divide by 4 or what. I am lost with this.

**PsyDAG**, Sunday, August 22, 2010 at 12:39pmL = 2W

L * W = 242

2W * W = 242

Solve for W, then L.

**MBK**, Sunday, August 22, 2010 at 12:55pmSo the L=242 and the W=60.5

Or am I way off base with this?

**MBK**, Sunday, August 22, 2010 at 12:58pmOr would the L=484 and the W=242

**Reiny**, Sunday, August 22, 2010 at 1:29pmno, work out PsyDAG's equation.

2W*W = 242

W^2 = 121

W = √121 = 11

so W = 11

L = 2W = 22

Check:

Area = 11*22 = 242
