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=2x-1
W=x+12
A=(2x-1)*(x+12)
A=2x^+24x-x-12=2x^2+23x-12
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.
