Let l be the length of the parcel of land. Recall that the area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width:
\(\displaystyle{A}={l}{w}\)
Substitute A=1125 square feet and w=25 feet:
\(\displaystyle{1125}={l}{\left({25}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle\frac{{1125}}{{25}}={l}\)
\(\displaystyle{l}={45}\)
So, the length of the parcel of land is 45 feet.

A multiple regression equation to predict a student's score in College Algebra \((\hat{y})\) based on their high school GPA (\(x_1x_1\)), their high school Algebra II grade (\(x_2x_2\)), and their placement test score (\(x_3x_3\)) is given by the equation below.
\(\hat{y}=-9+5x_1x_1+6x_2x_2+0.3x_3x_3\)
a) According to this equation, what is the predicted value of the student's College Algebra score if their high school GPA was a 3.9, their high school Algebra II grade was a 2 and their placement test score was a 40? Round to 1 decimal place.
b) According to this equation, what does the student's placement test score need to be if their high school GPA was a 3.9, their high school Algebra II grade was a 2, and their predicted College Algebra score was a 67? Round to 1 decimal place.
