The base of a rectangle is one more then three times the height. The area is 14 sq. in. What is the base?
A = base* height
base = 3h + 1
(3h+1)(h) = 14
The only number that makes this true is 2. 2*2=4*3=12+2=14 :)
Thank you so much.
No problem! By the by, the factoring works as follows:
The second solution is clearly impossible, so only the first works :)
