## anonymous 3 years ago A classroom has a volume of x3 + 5x2 – 2x – 24 ft3 and the height is x – 2 ft. The floor is represented by what polynomial? x2 + x + 7 x2 – 7x + 7 x2 + x – 12 x2 + 7x + 12

1. anonymous

volume = area of floor * height

2. ParthKohli

I think that you mean "area of the floor".

3. anonymous

area of floor= volume/ height

4. ParthKohli

For the area of floor, divide x - 2 from that polynomial.

5. ParthKohli

For that, do synthetic division, long division or any other crappy method.

lindsey you there?

7. anonymous

yes i am

8. anonymous

cool....you can do this now...

9. anonymous

$\frac{ x^3+5x^2-2x-24 }{ x-2 }$ hope that helps you Lindsey

A?

11. anonymous

no

12. anonymous

Arlen, is it B?

13. anonymous

It's C!

14. anonymous

I'd recommend synthetic division.

15. anonymous

yes

16. jim_thompson5910

it's not C

17. anonymous
