The area of a rectangular blanket in square centimetersis 40x^2+2x-65. The width is 4x-5cm^2. Find the dimensions of the blanket in terms of x.

Can someone plz help with this?

Do you have any more information that you are not giving? If the blanket were square, I could use the following formula:

(4x - 5cm^2)(4x - 5cm^2) = 40x^2 + 2x - 65

Unfortunately, it is rectangular. Until you can formulate equations, you cannot find the value of x.

I'm sorry that I cannot be of more help. Thanks for asking.
