Since we know the area and the length of the rectangular cloth, we can use the formula for the area of a rectangle to find the width. The formula is: Area = (length)(width) A = l * w
Replace the area and the length with the values given.
\(\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{2}}-{19}{x}-{85}={\left({2}{x}+{5}\right)}\cdot{w}\)
Our goal is to get w by itself since we want to find the width. We can divide the length on both sides to get the width by itself.
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{6}{x}^{{2}}-{19}{x}-{85}}}{{{2}{x}+{5}}}={w}\)
The numerator of the fraction is a quadratic equation. We can simplify the equation to see if we can simplify the fraction any further.
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{\left({2}{x}+{5}\right)}{\left({3}{x}-{17}\right)}}}{{{2}{x}+{5}}}={w}\)
We can simplify the fraction even further.
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{1}{\left({3}{x}-{17}\right)}}}{{1}}={w}\)
w = 3x -17
The width of the rectangular cloth is (3x - 17) cm.
