When solving mathematical problems it is often simpler to make them into algebra to begin with. So let's change the question into: 1.5x * 1x = 300000 We can simplify that into 1.5x^2 = 300000 we can simplify further into x^2 = 300000/1.5 = 200000 we can then take the square of each side using a calculator x = 447.2 So the sides will be 1.5*447.2 and 1*447.2 670.8 by 447.2 feet
