A farmer has a rectangular field with dimensions 2m+7 and m-2. If the field has an area of 51 square units, what is the value of m?
Hint: Answer is not 0
(2m+7)((m-2) = 51
The factors of 51 are 1,3,17,51.
When looking further we can see that 3 and 17 fill the requirements if m = 5.
So the answer is m = 5.
( Please tell me if my answer is incorrect)
Also correct, thank you!
