the area of a rectangular table =82 square feet if its length is 8 feet longer than its width find the dimensions of the table

math 
PsyDAG,
L = W + 8
L * W = 82 
math (Con't.) 
PsyDAG,
(W+8)W = 82
W^2 + 8W  82 = 0
I don't see how this could be factored. Do you have typos?

piyush yadav,
it has roots with sq. roots not simple integer coz its determinant is not a perfect sq.

math 
drwls,
piyush has confused the word determinant with discriminant, but is correct in saying thwe roots will not be integers
