If each side of a square were increased by seven feet the area would be three hundred fifteen square larger. What is the length of a side 

 

Call the side of the square X  

 

Then                                          (X + 7)2  =  X2 + 315  

 

Multiply out the left side            X2 + 14X + 49  =  X2 + 315  

 

Subtract X2 from both sides        14X + 49  =  315 

 

Subtract 49 from both sides          14X  =  266    

 

Divide both sides by 14                     X  =  19
