(ii) Find the difference between the area of the two rectangles

**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 11:27amold area = (3x-4y)(2x-3y)

new length = 3x-4y + 3

new width = 2x-3y + 3

new area = (3x-4y+3)(2x-3y+3)

for the difference subtract the two.

You would expand each one then collect like terms
