Q:
# A rectangular deck is 12 ft by 14 ft. When the length and width are increased by the same amount, the area becomes 288 sq . By how much were the dimensions increased?

Accepted Solution

A:

Well to get the area of 288 the dimensions would be a couple of things but 16 ft by 18 ft seems to work, so the dimensions increase by 4 ft on each side.

12+4=16

14+4=18

18*16=288

12+4=16

14+4=18

18*16=288
