**Henry**, Tuesday, December 7, 2010 at 6:31pmA = (30 + X) (20 + X) = 2(30 * 20),

X^2 + 30X + 20X + 600 = 1200 m,

X^2 + 50X + 600 = 1200,

X^2 + 50X + 600 - 1200 = 0,

X^2 + 50X - 600 = 0,

Factor the Eq:

(X - 10) (X + 60) = 0,

X - 10 = 0,

X = 10.

X + 60 = 0,

X = -60.

Use the positive value of x:

X = 10 m = width of strips added,
