Extending square garden

Mrs. Petrová's garden had the shape of a square with a side length of 15 m. After its enlargement by 64 m2 (square), it had the shape of a square again. How many meters has the length of each side of the garden been extended?

Correct result:

x =  2 m


a=15 m a2+64=b2  b=a2+64=152+64=17  x=ba=1715=2 m
