If no height is given for the triangle, you cannot find the area. Does the triangle share a side with the rectangle? Could it be that the height of the triangle is one of the sides of the rectangle? Your area for the rectangle is correct.

The first thing to notice in the first question is that 19 is a prime number. If you can list ALL factors of -19, then you have all values of k using integers.

You factored the expression 2x^2 - 7x - 15 and got (x - 4)(x + 2) If you multiply those together, you do not get the original expression. Your answer is not correct. the factors that have 3 and 5 in them are the correct answer.
