A restaurant has x floors. The number of tables on each floor is 4 less than the number of floors. The number of chairs with each table is 1 less than the number of tables on each floor. The expression below shows the total number of chairs in the restaurant: x(x - 4)(x - 5) Part A: What does x(x - 4) represent? Part B: What type of polynomial is x(x - 4)(x - 5)? Part C: What is the degree of the polynomial x(x - 4)?

    x = floors x - 4 = tables x - 5 = amount of chairs x(x-4) = the amount of tables all together x(x-5) amount of chairs Want to know why?

    they are telling you that the number of tables on each floor is 4 less than the number of floors (x - 4) So, x(x - 4) would be the number of tables in the floor
