    Let x = the width and x + 30 = the length.

    x(x + 3) = 8800

    x^2 + 3x = 8800

    x^2 + 3x – 8800 = 0

    Using the Quadratic Formula, I get x ≈ 92.320 yd and x + 30 ≈ 122.320 yd.

    2x + 2x + 60 = 600

    4x + 60 = 600

    4x = 540

    x = 135

    x + 30 = 165

    The area would be 22275 yd^2.

    Answer:

    110 yards and 80yards

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given: Stanford University’s soccer field has an area of 8800 square yards. Its length is 30 yards longer than its width.

    To Find: Write an equation and solve for the dimensions of the soccer field.

    Solution:

    Total area of Stanford University’s soccer field=8800 \text{square yards}

    let the length of soccer field is=\text{l}

    let the width of soccer field is=\text{b}

    Now,

    as given

    \text{l}=\text{b}+30

    We know that

    area of soccer field=\text{length}\times\text{width}

    putting values

    \text{l}\times\text{b}[tex]=8800[/tex]

    \text{b}(30+\text{b})=8800

    equation for width of  soccer field

    \text{b}^{2}+30\text{b}-8800=0

    (\text{b+110})(\text{b}-80)=0

    as \text{b} can not be negative

    \text{b}=80 \text{yards}

    \text{l}=\text{b}+30

    \text{l}=110 \text{yards}

    the dimensions of soccer field are 110 \text{yards} and 80 \text{yards}
