plz help me Ken is building a table. He attached planks of wood and now wants to build a border around the planks. The area of the entire table should be no larger than 3,276 square inches. All together, the planks are 36 inches wide and 72 inches long. Which quadratic equation represents the area of the planks and border combined? (The border must have equal width on each side.)
4x2 + 216x + 2,592 = 0
4x2 + 216x − 684 = 0
2x2 + 216x − 3,276 = 0
x2 + 108x + 3,276 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and what is the variable "x" supposed to represent? number of planks? width?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03276 would have to be the area; x has to be a side measurement.
