You decide to build a rectangular garden in your backyard. You've designated an area of 180m^2 for your garden. Due to the configuration of your backyard, the width of the garden must be 8 meters less than the length.

[tex]Length = 18m[/tex]

[tex]Width = 10m[/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

[tex]Area = 180m^2[/tex]

[tex]Width = Length - 8[/tex]

Required

Determine the Length and the Width

Represent Width with W and Length with L;

So, we have:

[tex]Area = L * W[/tex]

[tex]Area = L * (L - 8)[/tex]

[tex]180 = L * (L - 8)[/tex]

[tex]180 = L^2 - 8L[/tex]

[tex]L^2 - 8L - 180 = 0[/tex]

Expand

[tex]L^2 - 18L + 10L- 180 = 0[/tex]

[tex]L(L - 18) + 10(L- 18) = 0[/tex]

[tex](L + 10)(L- 18) = 0[/tex]

Split

[tex]L + 10 =0[/tex] or [tex]L - 18 = 0[/tex]

[tex]L = -10[/tex] or [tex]L = 18[/tex]

But length cant be negative:

So,

[tex]L = 18[/tex]

Recall that:

[tex]Width = Length - 8[/tex]

[tex]W = 18 - 8[/tex]

[tex]W = 10[/tex]

Hence:

[tex]Length = 18m[/tex]

[tex]Width = 10m[/tex]

The answer would be d i think but i’m for sure it is not a and c

[tex]The vertex of this parabola is at (-2,1) .which of the following could be its equation a. x=4(y+1)^2[/tex]

1) is right
