Area : 35y2+13y-12

Asked by  | 5th May, 2012, 08:55: PM

Expert Answer:

35y2 + 13y - 12 = (7y - 3) (5y + 4)
 
Equating the above expression to zero, we get y = 3/7 and y = -4/5
But, as these are sides so y cannot be negative. Hence, we can conclude that the given expression cannot be the area of a rectangle.
