Question

Jonathan's rectangular patio has an area of 299.49 square ft. It is 13.4 ft long . How wide is Jonathan's patio, in ft?

2 Answer

  • The formula for area is A=LW L being length and W being width
    A= 299.49
    L=13.4
    W=?
    299.49=13.4(L)
    divide both sides by 13.4 and you get the answer 
    L=22.35 ft
  • To solve this problem, write an equation

    229.49 represents total size of the patio and 13.4 represents the length.
    x represents the width.

    229.49 = 13.4 * x

    Divide 13.4

    x = 17.126 

    The patio is 17.126 feet wide.
