A square has sides of length 3x - 2 cm. Express the area of the square as a polynomial.

would i write this as

3x-2cm^4 because there are foru sides

sorry post went before i was done

polynominial confuse me

after thinking about what polynomial is suppose to represent one or more summed terms, i am assuming the 3x and the 2cm are the summed terms if i am not getting the understanding right please tell me

polynomial simply means "many or several numbers", poly is Greek for many

one side is 3x-2

the area of a square is (side)x(side) or (side)^2

so all they want is (3x-2)^2
