The length of a rectangle is 1 foot more than its width. write a polynomial that represents the area of the rectangle. Estimate the width of the rectangle

if its area is 25 square feet
please check the question for correctness
Question is correct


The Brainliest Answer!
Let width be =x
Then length is x+1
Area of rectangle= x(x+1)=x²+1    The polynomial
so from the question we have
              ⇒    x²+x-25=0 This is a quadratic equation
And solving for x
        We have x={ -1+_√(1²-4*1(-25)}/2
                        = {-1+-√101)/2= -5.524 or 4.524
Neglecting negative no. we have width=4.524 feet
