No your equation is not correct,
If you call the width of the rectangle x, then the length of the rectangle is x-4, and the area=96=width*length=x(x-4)
surely you can solve the quadratic
This is suppose to be a quadratic word problem.
The length of a rectangle is 4 cm less than the width. find the Dimensions if the are is 96.
Would this be right?
(x+4)*(2x)= 96
Then FOIL and solve using quadratic?
Please post the solution also.
Thanks
