Homework Help: math

Posted by Jane on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 6:52pm.

You are planting a rectangular garden. It is 5 ft longer than 3 times its width. The area of the garden is 250 ft^2. Find the dimensions of the garden.

I set it up like this: 3x +5 = 250 where x=8l.7. Is this correct so far, if so what do I do next? Thanks
