Question

The length of a rectangle is 29 centimeters less than six times its width. Its area is 42 square centimeters.

1 Answer

  • Length = 6 times Width - 29


    & we know that Length * Width = 42

     Let x be the width , then (6x-29)*x= 42

    or 6x² -29x-42 =0

    Solve this quadratic equation & you'll find that X = WIDTH = 6cm
