Could someone please help me with this problem. I posted it yesterday but the teacher who tried to help me didn't know what I was fully talking about and I hope you can.
Directions: Find the area of each shaded region in simplest form.
(Imagine a medium rectangle that has 5x1 on the top, 2x on the left side and inside the square in the corner is a right angle box with a 3 on the top and a 2 on the left side. Inside the retangle is the shaded region expect the box)
So this is what I came up with
10x^21+3+2=
10x^2+4

Sorry I have a mistake where it says 2x on the left saide and in side the square, square is supposed to be rectangle.

Total area in rectangle=(5x1)(2x)
area in box: 3(2)=6
Shaded area then is
(5x1)(2x)6
10x^22x6 
Thanks so much for your help

Ah, Madeline, now you changed the wording of the question.
