    \(A=\frac{1}{2}bh\) base = b = x How would you write "1 more than 6 times \(x\)"

    6^2 I assume by my answer choices

    you don't have to assume. translate the words to symbols. "times" is self explanatory. What does "1 more than" mean? If you want 1 more than something, are you adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing?

    ok so what does "1 plus 6 times x" look like?

    so the height of the triangle is \(1+6x\)

    So putting that into the area formula \(A=\frac{1}{2}bh\) \(13=\frac{1}{2}x(1+6x)\)

    its asking for an equation to model the situation how would I find that

    They might want it in a particular format, so you may have to multiply or move terms to the other side

    I think they want the expanded form

    distribute ½x, and maybe subtract the 13
