HELP! I will give brainliest
Ralph wants to build a rectangular deck with a predefined area of 66 feet squared. One side of the deck will be 5 feet longer than the other. To find the side lengths, he first writes the equation (x)(x+5)=66 and later simplifies it to (x-6(x+11)=0, where x is the length of the shorter side. Which of these are the side lengths, in feet, of the rectangular deck? Select all that apply.
The shorter side 6th ft and the longer sides are 11ft
The options are not given, but we could solve and arrive at an answer
say the shorter side is x
and the longer side is x+5
we know that the area of a rectangle is given as
open the bracket
Find two factors of -66 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 5 .
the factors are 11 and -6
splitting the middle term using the two factors 11 and -6
x2 +11x - 6x - 66=0
The shorter side is 6 ft and the longer side is 11 ft
step-by-step explanation:yes it is1. move over 2 points on the x-axis2. move over 2 points on the y-axis
