A student opens a mathematics book to two facing pages. The product of the page number is 420. Find the page numbers.
The first page is ____
The second page is ____

Here's a hint: the square root of 420 is 20.49

Ms. Sue...I understand how to get the sqrt of 420, but after that I get lost. So what you typed is not making sense in my head ..ughhh

What do you get when you multiply 20 * 21?

420, so more or less I would have had to have found 2 numbers that equaled 420 when multiplied (which product means multiply 2 numbers)correct?
So my first page would be 20
Second page would be 21 
Right.

Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate it very much!

You're very welcome.
