Question 64898: Any help on this would be great, I can't seem to figure it out.
A photo is 3 inches longer that it is wide. A 2-inch border is placed around the photo making the total area of the photo and border 108in2. What are the dimensions of the photo? Answer by checkley71(8403) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! (X+4)(X+7)=108
(X+4)IS THE WIDTH (X)+ TWO 2 INCH BORDERS
(X+7)IS THE LENGTH (X+3)+ TWO 2 INCH BORBERS
X=-16 (NON SOLUTION)
X=5 SOLUTION. INCHES FOR THE WIDTH OF THE PICTURE
X+3=8 INCHES FOR THE LENGTH OF THE PICTURE.
