# CRAZY ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE AP MATH PROBLEM

there is a field (112m x 75m) that are split into 13 square plots. What are the dimensions [must be in whole meters].

there is a picture, but the boxes are not to scale so i don't know how to get started on this problem. if someone could help me this would be great.

Want to do it painless?

Take the figure. You need a ruler. Assign the side of the smallest square as 1. Then, go to the next smallest adjoining square, and call its side x. Then, start working sides of squares from these two mumbers, determining lengths of the sides until you have them all done. At that point, you know the side lengths really are, so you have some functions of x that are equal to 112 and 75. Solve for x.

There is an analytic method, it is for crazy ap kids to work on for weeks.

Forget the ruler. I was initially sidegtracked. You don't need it with the painless method I gave you.
