Find each product.

{ this means the square root sign.

1. (3+2{20)(5+3{45)

2. The length and width of the rectangle are x-5 and 2x-6

a. Write a trinomial that represents that area of the rectangle.

b. What is the smallest integer value of x that will give positive values for the length and the width of the rectangle?

1. (3+2sqrt 20 )(5+3sqrt 45) ???

use FOIL

15 + 9 sqrt(900) + 10 sqrt(900) + 900

but sqrt 900 = 30

so 15 + 19*30 + 900

2. The length and width of the rectangle are x-5 and 2x-6

a. Write a trinomial that represents that area of the rectangle.

(x-5)(2x-6) = 2 x^2 -16 x + 30

b. What is the smallest integer value of x that will give positive values for the length and the width of the rectangle?

If x is <5, length is negative

if x < 3, width is negative

so 3

- Whoops, messed up first one, FOILed again -

I multiplied wrong, when I foiled.
