Chad had a garden that was in the shape of a rectangle. Its length was twice its width. He decided to make a new garden that was 2 feet longer and 2 feet wider than his first garden. If x represents the original width of the garden, which expression represents the difference between the area of his new garden and the area of the original garden?

1. original garden is (x)(2x) = 2x^2

new garden = (x+2)(2x+2) =

so difference = (x+2)(2x+2) - x(2x)
