 Question 329277: I saw this problem in my textbook: A rectangle has a perimeter of 42 miles and an area of 104 square miles. Find the dimensions of the rectangle. Answer: The formula for perimeter of a rectangle is, P = 2*L + 2*W = 42 1.L+W=21 The formula for area of a rectangle is, A=L*W=104 2.L*W=104 From eq. 1, L=21-W Substitute into eq. 2, (21-W)*W=104 21W-W^2=104 You can factor this quadratic, (W-13)(W-8)=0 Two solutions: W-13=0 W=13 Then from above, L+13=21 L=8 W-8=0 W=8 L=13 The rectangle is 13 miles by 8 miles.

 Question 329425: the length of a rectanlge is twice the width. The area is 128yd^2. I know that A=2(L)+2(w). But with this equation wouldn't it be calcutaed differently? given the equation -0.4x^2+11.2x+14 for an event selling tickets. I know that the graph would open downward because of the negative 0.4x. Now it is asking the# if days since the 1st. day of tickets sold, when the sales peaked and how many sold that day. I'm assuming that the quadratic equation should apply here?
