Answer:Width = (x + 8) inches.Step-by-step explanation:The area of the quilt is the length times the width and if we know the area and the length we can find the width by area / length.

Area = x^2 + 18x + 80 = (x + 10)(x + 8) – now we know that the length is (x + 10) so the width must be (x + 8) inches.Let me know if you require more explanation.
