Can someone simply tell me what methods I must use in order to solve this word problem? Please, don't include the answer. I wish to solve this on my own. However, I would truly appreciate it if anyone could evaluate my answer afterwards.

"A rectangle has a width w and its length is 4 units longer than 2 times the width, or 2w + 4. Write a polynomial for the area of the rectangle."

  • Algebra 1 -

    My answer: 2w^2 + 4^2?

  • Algebra 1--??? -

    Have I answered correctly?

  • Algebra 1 -

    as you know,

    area = width * length

    area = w*(2w+4)
