**Answer:**

L = 2

W = 1.5

## Solution:

Let L be the length and W be the width

Area of rectangle = LW

LW = 3

W = L – 0.5

Substitute L for W

L(L-0.5) = 3

Subtract 3 to both sides

Solve this using quadratic formula, where a = 1, b = -0.5 and c = -3

We will ignore negative answer because there is no dimension that is a negative number.

Since we already found the length, we can also find the width.

W = L – 0.5

W = 2 – 0.5 = 1.5

Therefore the dimensions are 2 and 1.5
