Let represent the measure of the side of the larger square. Then the measure of the side of the smaller square is . Therefore the area of the larger square is and the area of the smaller square is . And since the difference in the areas is we can say: Solve for and then subtract 7 to get the two length measures. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
