Damian has 74 m of fencing to build a four-sided fence around a
rectangular plot of land. The area of the land is 342 square meters.
Solve for the dimensions (length and width) of the field.


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Let the length be l and the width be y. We have the following:
    l + w = 37
    lw = 342
    From here, we can find the factor pairs of 342, and see which pair has a sum of 37. Our desired pair is 18 & 19, so the dimensions of the field are 18 by 19 feet.
