    This question has typos. It does not make sense as typed.

    If the area is x^2+5x+6m^2 and we know the area is a square which is base times height, we can factor the equation so that it comes out to (x+3)(x+2)since the height is x+3 then we know the base is x+2. (is this correct)

    It would be correct for a rectangle, not fo a square.
