A rectangular is six times as long as it is wide. If the area is 54 ft^2, find the length and the width of the table.

  • algebra. -

    let x = width
    let 6x = length (according to the first statement)
    recall that area of a rectangle is given by,
    A = length x width
    thus,
    54 = x * 6x
    54 = 6x^2
    9 = x^2
    x = 3 ft (width)
    6x = 18 ft (length)

    hope this helps~ :)
