Suppose that the area of a square is forty-one times its perimeter. Find the length of a side of the square.

• Algebra -

41(x+x+x+x)=x^2

since the area of a square is forty-one times its perimeter, I multiply 41 on the perimeter side to set the perimeter equal to the area

solve for x. you'll get two answers. eliminate the one that is equal to zero since a measure of length cannot equal to zero!
