 Question 58632: A designer, attempting to arrange the characters of his artwork in the form of a square grid with equal number of rows and columns, found that 24 characters were left out. When he tried to add one more row and column, he found that he was short 25 characters. Can you find the number of characters used by the designer? I tried to solve this way: y=x + 24 y = x*x-25 Now I am stuck!!!!!!!!!!Please help Click here to see answer by stanbon(57407)

 Question 58636: Some students planned a get-together. The budget for food was \$500. Five of the students failed to come because of the distance and therefore the cost of food for each member increased by \$5. How many students attended the get-together? I did my equation like this: x = he number of students (x-5) + 5 = 500 x=500 Am I even close? Click here to see answer by stanbon(57407)
