 Question 239003: Winter Wheat question: WHile finding the amount of seed needed to plant his three square wheat fields, Hank observed that the side of one field was 1 Kilometer longer than the side of the smallest field and that the side of the largest field was 3 kilometer longer than the side of the smallest field. If the total area of the three fields is 38 square kilometers, then what is the area of each field? x^2+(x+1)^2=(x+3)^2=38 Used the foil method to solve (x+1)(x+1) and (x+3)(x+3) x^2+x^2+2x+1+x^2+6x+9=38 3x^2+8x+10=38 3x^2+8x-28=0 I know this is wrong because I can't solve. Any suggestions? Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 239007: Venture Capital: Henry invested \$12000 in a new resturant. When the resturant was sold two years later, he received \$27000. Find the average annual return by solving the equation 12,000(1+r)^2=27000. used the foil to solve the (1+r)^2 or (1+r)(1+r) 12000(1+2r+r^2)=27000 12000+24,000r+12000r^2=27000 -15000+24,000r+1200r^2=0 THis is as far as I could get.
