    oh really there is now way of knowing unless you have a picture. they want you to say \[8m^2+12m=4m(m+3)\]

    and area is \[\frac{1}{2}bh\]

    so \[\frac{1}{2}bh=4m(m+3)\] \[bh=8m(m+3)\]

    like that geometric series one where the first term was \[\sqrt{x}\] and the third term was \[4\sqrt{5}\] and you were supposed to deduce r as if it was possible
