 Question 183999: area of a sail. the area in square meters for a triangular sail is given by A(x)=x^2+5x+6 A) find A(5). b) If the height of the sail is x+3 meters, then what is the length of the base of the sail. Answer by edjones(7569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A(x)=x^2+5x+6 A) A(5)=5^2+ 5*5 +6 =25+25+6 =56m^2 . B) A=.5ab 56=.5(5+3)b I am assuming that x=5. If it doesn't then ignore this answer. 4b=56 b=14m . Ed
