A printed page is to have a total area of 100 square inches. The top and bottom margins are to be 1 inch and the side margins to be 1.5 inches. Let l represent the total length of the page and w represent the total width of the page.
a) Write an equation, using L and W, to express the constraint.
b) Write an equation, using L and W, to express the print area of the page.
c) Write the equation of the print area in terms of only.
a. I don't know what you mean by "constraint." L * W = 100?
b. (L-2)(W-3) = print area
c. In terms of only what?
