Homework Help: Algebraic Polynomials

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 8:38pm.

I don't know where to go about creating a polynomial equations for the following problem: A piece of wire 52 in. long is cut into two pieces, and then each piece is formed into a square. If the sum of the areas of the two squares is 97 in.^2, how long are the pieces of wire? My attempted starting point is 97 = (1/4(x))^2 + ((1/4)(52-x))^2, but my numbers don't seem to work. Help is appreciated!
