Patchwork. A quilt patch cut in the shape of a triangle has a base of 5x inches and a height of 1,732x inches. What polynomial represents its area?
Answer:
Area of triangle is ½*b*h
B=5x
H=1732x
A=1/2*5x*1732x=4330x^2
A=L*W
L=2x1
W=x+12
A=(2x1)*(x+12)
A=2x^+24xx12=2x^2+23x12
I need to know if this is done correctly.

Everything looked good up to and
including your calculation of the
area of the triangle. The other work dosen't seem to be related to the
problem. Take a close look at the
question. When you answer the question
the problem is solved.
YOUR cal: A = 4330X^2 sq. in.
General Eq: A = ax^2. a is a constant.
You might get different opinions on
this one.
