6.)A rectangular picture has a height that is 5/7 of its width.Its area is 140 square inches.What are the dimensions of the picture.
Thank You!!I need it for my assignment.



T1 + t2=5;

60/v+5 +60/v-5=5;
60v-300+60v +300=5(v^2-25);
v=25mph..speed still in water;

1 5 1
1/a +1/b= 1/3;
1/(8+x) + 1/x=1/3; 3/{8+x}+3/x=1;3x +24 +3x =8x+x^2;x^2 +2x-24; x=4hours...0r for b=4hours, please practie the rest
Thank you for your help but Im weak in math
