so the area of the first triangle = 520
And the area = base* height
Therefore (2x)(x+7) = 520 and solve for x

Oh sorry i mean the area of the rectangle =520
And 2x(x+7) =520
10. (Original post by Ayaz789)
Oh sory i mean the area of the rectangle =520
And 2x(x+7) =520
So it's 2x^2 + 15 = 520

Then I minus 15 from both sides?

2x^2+14x & solve it like a quadratic by doi g minus 520 from both sides

Finding the factor bit quiet hard.

Divide everything by 2 to get x^2+7x-260=0

Oh okay.
Why do I divide it by 2?

Just to make it a lot easier to factorise!

17. Yep and you cannot have a negative x value as x has to be postive!

Oh so X is always positive?

Also you know this one have I started this alright?

Expand the whole bracket! x^2+11x+24

X is positive in this case because it's a distance, and you can't have a negative distance!

Have you heard of FOIL? You also need to multiply x by 8 and x by 3
