Zelda wants to reduce one dimension by a number of feet and increase the other dimension by the same number of feet. If the area of the reduced deck is 51 square feet, what are the dimensions of the deck? SOLUTION: Let x be the number of feet added and subtracted to each dimension of the deck. Replace A with 51, l with + x, and w with  x. Since the amount added and subtracted to the dimensions cannot be negative, 8 feet is the amount that is added and subtracted to the dimensions. 8 = = Therefore, the dimensions of the deck are 16 feet by feet. 7.SALES The sales of a particular CD can be modeled by the equation S = 5m + 15m, where S is the number of CDs sold in thousands, and m is the number of months that it is on the market. a.
