The length of a rectangle is 6 meters more than it's width.

and the area of the rectangle is 135 square meters.

w(w + 6) = 135

w^2 + 6w - 135 = 0

(w + 15) • (w - 9) = 0

The dimensions of the rectangle:

Length = 15 meters

Width = 9 meters

a 7th grade problem..( worked today)....A = w L = w ( w + 6) ≡ 135 ====>

w² + 6 w - 135 = 0 = ( w + 15 ) ( w - 9) ===> width is 9 m
