1. X^2 +50x factors and
= x(x + 50)

clearly, x must be a positive number, so clearly x+50 is larger than x

Usually, in talking about length and width, the length is the larger of the two dimensions, isn't it ?

So, what do you think?

3. Area = width x length
X^2 +50x = x(x+50)

so x must be the width
x+50 must be the length
