## xokatexo 3 years ago A.) The width of a rectangle is x centimeters. Represent the lenghth of the rectangle if it exceeds twice the width by 3 centimeters B.) If a plane travels 550 kilometers per hour, represent the distance it will travel in h hours.

1. CliffSedge

What math operation means to exceed (make more)?

2. xokatexo

i think so

3. CliffSedge

And for (B) What operation do you think you'll need to use there if it's 550km for each of h hours?

4. CliffSedge

(By operation, I mean: +, -, ×, ÷)

5. Arielllllllllllllllll

Can i draw a picture for you?

7. xokatexo

cliff: multiplication?

8. xokatexo

and ariellllllll so how do i solve that

9. CliffSedge

Right. (For part B)

10. CliffSedge

There is nothing to solve. It is merely asking for a representation / an expression.

11. xokatexo

@CliffSedge but i dont know what im supposed to write...i have to show work

12. Arielllllllllllllllll

Yes, so length = 2x + 3

13. Arielllllllllllllllll

unless it told you the area or perimeter, I really can't help you there, darling. Sorry. But I suppose you would just draw what I did?

14. xokatexo

thanks ariel!!!! @CliffSedge im so confused on what i have to write

15. CliffSedge

What if it was 550 km per hour for 2 hours, how could you find the distance?

16. xokatexo

550 x 2

17. xokatexo

so its just 500h?

18. CliffSedge

Right, but it said that it was for h hours. It's using h to represent any number. If h=2 then it would be like you wrote, but since it's just h, do the same thing but with h instead of 2.

19. CliffSedge

Yes, distance = 550h.

thanks guys!
