I need assisatnce with this. I do not want the answer I just want some guidence on how I should start it.

The width of a rectangle is 5 ft, its length is (3x+2) ft, and its area is 75 ft². Find x

  • Algebra -

    Just set up an equation:

    area = width * length

    75 = 5 * (3x+2)

    . . .

    That's what I thought but what about the 75 being squared does that make a difference?
