A rectangular block is 2 cm wider than it is high and twice as long as it it wide. Let x cm be the height of the block.
Find an expression for the total surface area, A cm2, in term of x.

• math -

Let L,W and H be the dimensions of the rectangular block.

Total surface area
A=2(LW+WH+HL)

So if
H=height=x
then
W=x+2, and
L=2W=2(x+2)
Substitute these values of H,W and L into the equation for A and simplify.
