The difference between the ares of two rectangles 2016-06-09
From Ingrid:
I am trying to help my son with an area question.
I have the answer, from the solutions, but I cannot figure out how to teach him.

Question:

Two rectangles have lengths 13cm and 19cm respectively.
Their total area is 376cm squared.
If both their widths are whole numbers, what is the difference in their areas?

I know that this is solvable once I determine the widths of the rectangles ,
but how do I go about finding that?

Thanks for your help
