The length and width of the field as a ratio of 11:7. The width is 20 meters less than the length.
How many m2 is the area?

• Math -

L = 11x
W = 7x

W = L - 20

Substitute 11x and 7x for L and W:
7x = 11x - 20

Solve for x and plug in the following to solve for length and width.

L = 11x
W = 7x

• Math -

Area = L*W
