a Rectanglular pen for a pet is 5 feet longer than it is wide. give possible values for the width W of the pen if its area must be between 176 and 760 square feet inclusively. The width of the pen ranges from the smaller value of the width--- feet, to the larger value of the width , ----feet , inclusively.

  • evaluating a math question - ,

    w(w+5) = 176
    w^2 + 5 w - 176 = 0
    (w -11)(w+16) = 0
    w = 11

    w^2 + 5 w = 760
    w^2 + 5 w - 760 = 0
    use quadratic equation
    w = 25.18, 30.18 or 25.18 for width

    so
    smaller is 11 and bigger is 25.18
