A greenhouse that specializes in growing bell peppers is divided into sections. The number of plants in each section depends on the number of sprinklers in that section. In a section with x sprinklers, there are 3x(x + 3) red bell pepper plants and (x + 4)2 yellow bell pepper plants. Which simplified expression represents the total number of red and yellow bell pepper plants in a section with x sprinklers? 3x2 + 17x + 16 4x2 + 17x + 16 3x4 + 17x2 + 16 4x4 + 17x2 + 16
man they really really reach to make these word problems don't they?
\[3x(x + 3)+(x+4)^2=3x^2+9x+x^2+8x+16\] combine like terms and you are done
