    Let width be x then

    Length is x+8

    Therefore area which is given by L*W will be

    Area=x * (x=8)

    But area = 825 sq inches

    x * (x+8) = 825

    x^2+8x-825=0

    we use quadratic formula to solve this

    and get our x=25 therefore

    our width is 25

    and length is 33
