If the area of the frame is 88 in.^2, find the width. Thank you very much.This question is from textbook Intermediate Algebra Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Area=2*8x+2*10x+4*x^2 88=16x+20x+4x^2 4x^2+36x-88=0 4(x^2+9x-22)=0 4(x+11)(x-2)=0 x-2=0 x=2 in for the frame width. Proof: 88=2*8*2+2*10*2+4*2^2 88=32+40+4*4 88=72+16 88=88
