where?
see below i have already answered
let l be the length
let x be the width

Given:
A = 176ft²

Formula:

A = l x w

since the length is 5 feet more than its width

l = 5 + w

176 = (w+5)(w)
176 = w²+5w
w = 11

l = w + 5
l = 11 + 5
l = 16

A = w x l
176 = (16)(11)
176 = 176

Let l be the length
let x be the width

Given:
A = 176ft²

Formula:

A = l x w

since the length is 5 feet more than its width

l = 5 + w

176 = (w+5)(w)
176 = w²+5w
w = 11

l = w + 5
l = 11 + 5
l = 16

A = w x l
176 = (16)(11)
176 = 176
