The area of a rectangle = 105

The length is 2x+1

Width is x

__________________________________

I tried solving it :

Arec = l x w

105 = (2x+1)x

105 = 2x^2 + x

0= 2x^2 + x - 105

This is where I get stuck on...

x = [ -1 +/- sqrt (1+840)]/4

= [ -1 +/- 29 ]/4

= 28/4 forget negative solution

= 7

or

(x - 7) (2x + 15) = 0
