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, Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 1:36am
L = W + 8
L * W = 82

math (Con't.)  PsyDAG, Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 1:39am
(W+8)W = 82
W^2 + 8W  82 = 0
I don't see how this could be factored. Do you have typos?
