A rectangular block is 2 cm wider than it is high and twice as long as it it wide. Let x cm be the height of the block.

Find an expression for the total surface area, A cm2, in term of x.

Let L,W and H be the dimensions of the rectangular block.

Total surface area

A=2(LW+WH+HL)

So if

H=height=x

then

W=x+2, and

L=2W=2(x+2)

Substitute these values of H,W and L into the equation for A and simplify.
