welcome to JA
here is how you do it
say the width is x
and hence the length becomes x+1
the area is x(x+1) = 56
x=7 and x=-8
the negative number is XXXXX physical
so we have width=7
and hence the length =7+1=8
Answer: length= 8 feet, width =7 feet
hope this helps
Thank you - but what does 56f^2 mean? is not the area then 3136? I am confused.
it means 56 square feet
like this ft²
note it is not 56*56
Oh, no wonder ! I thought it meant 56*56. Boy, I had that incorrect. Thank you.
Very simple problem now.
