mang pedring wanted to construct a square table such that the length of its side is 30 cm longer than its height.
How would you represent the height of the table? How about the length of its side?

Let x = height of the table
since length is 30 cm longer than the height, then
height = x + 30 
*sorry i mean
length = x + 30 
How can a square table have different length and height?

probably the height in the problem is the length of the leg of the table or how high the table is.
