 Rectangles/125189: The length of a rectangle is 1 cm longer than its width. If the diagonal of the rectangle is 4 cm, what are the dimensions (the length and the width) of the rectangle?1 solutions Answer 91838 by checkley71(8403)   on 2008-02-06 17:23:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!LET X BE ONE OF THE SIDES. X+1 IS THE OTHER SIGN. X^2+(X+1)^2=4^2 X^2+X^2+2X+1=16 2X^2+2X+1-16 2X^2+2X-15=0 USING THE QUADRATIC EQUATION: X=(-2+-SQRT[2^2-4*2*-15])/2*2 X=(-2+-SQRT[4+120 ])/4 X=(-2+-SQRT[124])/4 X=(-2+-11.136)/4 X=(-2+11.136)/4 X=9.136/4 X=2.28 ANSWER. X=(-2-11.138)/4 X=-13.138/4 X=-3.28 ANSWER.
