# Math

Suppose you have a sailboat with one triangular sail. The base of the sail is 4x feet and it's height is 3x + 10 feet. Write a binomial that in terms of x for the area of the sail. Hint: The area of a triangle is 1/2 of the area of a rectangle.

Areabinomial= 1/2(4x)(3x+10)=2x(3x+10)

Binomial....consist of two terms...
