# The diagram below represents the measurements of Jennie’s yard. The yard’s width is x feet shorter

###### Question:

## Answers

The width is 12 feet shorter than the length.

Step-by-step explanation:

The area of a rectangle can be calculated with this formula:

[tex]A=lw[/tex]

Where "l" is the lenght and "w" is the width of the rectangle.

We know that lenght of Jennie's yard is 30 feet, the width is [tex](30-x)ft[/tex] and the area is 540 square feet. Then:

[tex]l=30\\w=(30-x)\\A=540[/tex]

Substitute these values into the formula and then solve for "x":

[tex]A=lw\\\\540=30(30-x)\\\\540=900-30x\\\\30x=900-540\\\\x=\frac{360}{30}\\\\x=12[/tex]

Therefore, the width is 12 feet shorter than the length.

12

Step-by-step explanation:

Its C: 30(30 – x) = 540

Step-by-step explanation:

I just did the assignment.

The correct answer is c. 30(30 – x) = 540

540-(30-x)=30 is your answer..

D IS ANSWER AS 540-(30-x)=30

=30-x=30-540

=-x=-510-30

=-x=-480

Minus Minus will cut

=x=480 ANSWER
