Then you have to realize that a square has four equal sides.

Finding the area of a square means you “square” the length of one side.

If you know the area of the finished garden, you can find the length of a side by taking the square root of that number.

That number is the length of one of the final sides.

Final length – length increased = original length

49 = s^2+10s+25

0= s^2+10s-24

0=(s-2)(s+12)

Therefore, s = 2, s=-12, but s cannot be -12 because a negative length doesn’t exist. Therefore each side was 2 meters in length. You can check this by the formula for area A= s^2 (side squared). A = (2 + 5)^2 = 49.

4s + 5=49

-5 -5

4s = 44

(the new side is 11)

Take new side 11 and subtract the meters that is was increased by

which was 5 and that gives you 6.

Jeezus, dude, I took “Pre-College Algebra” THREE TIMES in High School in order to get a C- and even I can do your math homework.

That’s sad.
