Answer :

Let the side of one square be x, another square be (x + 6)

Sum of Areas = 468 m2


x2 + (x + 6)2 = 468


2x2 + 12x - 432 = 0


x2 + 6x - 216 = 0


Performing factorization we get:


x2 + 18x - 12x - 216 = 0


x(x + 18) - 12(x + 18) = 0


(x - 12)(x + 18) = 0


x = 12, - 18


Neglecting the negative value , we get


Side of squares = 12 m ,18 m
