The area in square meters for a triangular sail is given by A(x) = x2 + 5x + 6. x = (5)
the height of the sail is x+3 is the length of the base x+2?

  • Mason - please check carefully -

    This question has typos. It does not make sense as typed.

  • math - maybe this is right -

    If the area is x^2+5x+6m^2 and we know the area is a square which is base times height, we can factor the equation so that it comes out to (x+3)(x+2)since the height is x+3 then we know the base is x+2. (is this correct)

  • math - see if correct -

    It would be correct for a rectangle, not fo a square.
