The length of the plot of land is 5 meters more than 3 times it's width. What is the area of the land? x=width L=Length Length x width = area in this case its L times x =area If x=width and L=5+3x then the equation L+x=A is as follows (5+3x)(x)=A 3x^2 +5x=A i cant find enough info to solve the problem further unless the 3x^2+5x is sufficient
