A photograph

A photograph will stick to a white square letter with a x cm length. The photo is 3/4 x cm long and 20 cm wide than the width of the paper. The surface of the remaining paper surrounding the photograph is 990 cm2. Find the size of paper and photo.

Correct answer:

a =  39.8458 cm
b =  29.8843 cm
c =  20 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

S1=a2 b=3/4 a c=20 S2=b c S1S2=990 cm2  a23/4a20=990  a23/4 a 20=990 a215a990=0  p=1;q=15;r=990 D=q24pr=15241(990)=4185 D>0  a1,2=2pq±D=215±4185=215±3465 a1,2=7.5±32.345787979272 a1=39.845787979272 a2=24.845787979272   Factored form of the equation:  (a39.845787979272)(a+24.845787979272)=0  a=a1=39.8458=39.8458 cm

Our quadratic equation calculator calculates it.

b=3/4 a=3/4 39.8458=29.8843 cm
c=20=20 cm  S1=a2=39.845821587.6868 cm2 S2=b c=29.8843 20597.6868 cm2
