a. x2+x=12 b. x2+2x=12 c. x2+x=24 d. x2+2x=24

Explain why option letter b,c and d are not the correct answer.
*Answer is already given; just show your solution and strategy on how you solve the problem.


W= x
l = 2x+2
Area = w×l = 24

x (2x+2) = 24
2x^2+2x= 24
divide 2x^2+2x to 2 = 24/2

then you get
