Area = length * width

length = (2x-1)m

width = (x+2)m

Area = (2x-1)(x+2) m^2

Multiply the two factors (use FOIL).

Area=Length*Width

Length = (2x-1)m

Width = (x+2)m

So, Area = (2x-1)(x+2)m^2

Substitute the "x" with 5.

So, Area= (2(5)-1)(5+2)m^2

Solve for Area now

Area= (9)(7)m^2

Area= 63m^2
