Mang Jose wants to make a table which has an area of 6m^2.The length of the table has to be 1m longer than the width.

a.If the width of the table is p meters,what will be it's length.

b.Form a quadratic equation for the problem and give the dimensions of the table.

1. Reiny

width ---- x m
length = x+1 m
area = x(x+1)

x(x+1) = 6

expand, arrange in the usual quadratic form, and solve.

I assume you know how to solve basic quadratics, or else you wouldn't have these
types of problems.
