## A rectangle and a square have the same area. The length of the rectangle is seventy feet more than two times its width. The length of a side

A rectangle and a square have the same area. The length of the rectangle is seventy feet more than two times its width. The length of a side of the square is thirty feet. Which of the following equations would help you solve for the dimensions of the rectangle?

A) 30^2 = x(2x + 70)

B) 30x^2 = 2x + 70

C) 302 = 70x * w mph

D) 30 + 30 = 70 + x * 2 mph

E) 30 * 2 = 70x^2

F) 100 = x^2 + x

## Answers ( No )

The area of the square = 30^2 ft^2

area of the rectangle = x * (2x + 70) ft^2 (where x = the width) and these areas are equal. Therefore:-

30^2 = x(2x + 70)Its
