A hanger!Hi;
We will use geogebra! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2 20111016 08:28:25
Re: A hanger!Hmmm ... the roots of y = x^2 + 5x + 4  10 = x^2 + 5x  6 are 6 and 1, so the side length is 7 and area is 49 "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20111016 09:33:50

Re: A hanger!I did have the advantage of your illustration. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20111016 17:35:48
