How do I solve this using polynomials and how would I solve this without polynomials and how do I know what operations to use?

The area of a rectangle is twice the area of a square. If the rectangle is 6 inches long, and the width of the rectangle is the same length of the side of the square. Find the dimensions of both rectangle and square?

Would the square automathically be side of 4.

Without polynomials: 6s = 2s^2 so 6 = 2s and s=3
