 Rectangles/623373: a rectangle has a length that is 1m less than twice its width. increasing the width by 3m and decreasing the length by 1m results in a square. find the dimensions of the rectangle.1 solutions Answer 392135 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   on 2012-06-24 20:00:47 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a rectangle has a length that is 1m less than twice its width. L = 2W-1 : increasing the width by 3m and decreasing the length by 1m results in a square Then the length and width will be equal; therefore: L-1 = W+3 L = W + 3 + 1 L = W + 4 Replace L with (2W-1), find W 2W - 1 = W + 4 2W - W = 4 + 1 W = 5 units is the width then 2(5) - 1 = 9 units is the length : find the dimensions of the rectangle. 9 by 5 : : You can check this by finding what the side of the square is Subtract 1 from 9 and add 3 to 5

 Square-cubic-other-roots/623355: I was given the impression that this is more of a physics "problem" written in algebraic form. But since I am an undereducated 64 y/o, over drugged, bedridden invalid and saw this tattoo on the shoulder of my son's latest love interest (physics major), I am a bit concerned. It goes: C = 1 OVER THE SQUARE ROOT OF "ME". Is this a statement that she is wholly into "me" or does this imply something I might want to be concerned about. I know this is thoroughly out of the ordinary. I do appreciate anything you can tell me. Thanks.
