To find the length of
*x*), one must solve the equation

Find the length of

To determine

**To find:**

To find the length of

Explanation

Consider the following figure,

By using the above figure the equation become the following,

Then simplify the above expression by multiplying on both sides to get the following,

Then subtract

The general form of the quadratic equation is given below,

Where *a* is the number multiplied by *b* is the number multiplied by *x*, and *c* is the constant term.

**Quadratic formula:**

The solution for

Compare the given equation with general equation to get the following,

Therefore,
