    Answer: x could be equal to either 12 or -19

    Step-by-step explanation: First we would need to create an equation so we can solve for x.  In this case we know that one number is 7 more than another one and their product is equal to 228.  Lets call the number we don’t know x and the other one which is 7 more than the unknown as x + 7.  We know that these two numbers multiplied by each other will equal 228.  Therefore we can write x * (x + 7) = 228 as a true statement.  Now simply solving for x leads us to get that x could be either 12 or -19.
