Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

chrissy,

In the case of a rectangular office, area is defined as length times width. So, in this case,

A(x) = x * (x+3) = x^2 + 3x is the polynomial that represents the area of the office.

If x = 12, then A(12) = 12 ^2 + 3*12 = 144 + 36 = 180 square feet. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
