The base of a rectangle is 2cm greater than its height. Find the base and the height of the parallelogram if the area of the parallelogram is 120 cm2. Can this be shown as a quadratic and factored?

  • math -

    b = h+2
    bh = 120
    (h+2)h = 120
    h^2 + 2 h - 120 = 0

    (h-10)(h+12) = 0
    h = 10
    b = 12
