square with side x + 5 =
area will be (x+5)^2, is this what you want??
Perimeter will be 4x+20
What does the "^" mean?
Can you show/explain how you came up with the answer please?
area is length times width, "^" means to the power of
if one side of a square is 5, the perirmeter is 5+5+5+5=20 or 5*4,
since it is x+5, it is 4(x+5)=4x+20=perimeter
the area of a square with a side length of 5 would be 5*5=25
if the length is x+5, you (x+5)(x+5), you have to use foil method
heres a example to the foil method since i cannot draw it
Example: (a+b)(c+d) = ac + ad + bc + bd
Thanks, is that sq ft?
yeah, sq ft for the area, ft for the perimeter.
Ok thanks, I appreciate your help with that one. The second one is
Rectangle with length x-4 and width x+1
my answer is 4 sq ft
Did I get it right? If not, can you please show me the correct way to do the problem?
Thank you very much
I used the FOIL method on the 1st problem. Is the answer
how did you get x*25x*25, show me all the steps
I used the FOIL method
x(x) * x(5) * 5(x) * 5(5)
x * 25x * 25
Thank you for clearing that up for me.
How does that equate to sq ft?
because (x+5)'s unit if feet, so (x+5)*(x+5)'s unit is feet*feet=feet^2, which is square feet.
Ok, thank you very much
