In this lesson, students learn how to write and solve an equation from geometry length and area word problems through two examples. The first example involves finding the length of the shortest side of an isosceles triangle, while the second example deals with finding the length of a rectangular parking lot. Students learn to define variables, write equations from word problems, and solve the equations to find the solution.
