Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What you want to do first is identify the rectangles. I spot two. Do you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like they are all shaded

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since they are all shaded, and since you have a square, the area is the square of the side the length of the side is \(3x+4\) so the total area is \((3x+4)^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How did you get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by looking across the top and adding the two lengths. one is \(3x\) the other is \(4\) so the total length is \(3x+4\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and therefore the total area is \((3x+4)^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See the book is horrible at explaining how to do this, what does this have to do with Polynomials

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the other answer is the area of the large square, which is \(3x\times 3x=9x^2\) plus the area of the small square which is \(4\times 4=16\) plus the area of the two reactangles, each of which is \(3x\times 4=12x\) when you add these you get \[9x^2+12x+12x+16=9x^2+24x+16\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are trying to get you to see by making a square, that \[(3x+4)^2=9x^2+24x+16\]
