  • algebra -

    The "shortest length side" and the "middle length side" are the two perpendicular legs of a right triangle. For such a triangle, the area is 1/2 the product of the two shortest sides.

    Now write that as an equation and do the rest.

    You will be multiplying (x - 3y), (x + 6y), and a constant. The units will be square feet.
