HELP!!! Math

posted by on .

The area of a yard is 15000 ft^2. If the ratio of the lenght to the width of the yard is 3:2, what are the dimensions of the yard?

  • HELP!!! Math - ,

    Width = X Ft.
    Length = 3X/2 Ft.

    Area = (3x/2) * X = 15,000 Ft^2
    Multiply both sides by 2:
    3x * x = 30.000
    3x^2 = 30000
    x^2 = 10000
    X = 100 Ft^2.
    3x/2 = (3*100)/2 = 150 Ft^2
