How do i write an expression in the form ax^2+bx+c for the area of the rectangle?

Given that the area of the rectangle is 294cm^2, determine the value of x and state the dimensions of the rectangle in cms?? want the working so i can do questions like these in the future.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 7:05pmArea = length x width, so

Area = (2x-1)(x+3)

expand this and you got the first part

(did you get 2x^2 + 5x - 3 ?)

now set this equal to 294

2x^2 + 5x - 3 = 294

2x^2 + 5x - 297 = 0

rather than waste time trying to factor this with these numbers, I would use the quadratic formula
