Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the height of the triangle is \(1+6x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So putting that into the area formula \(A=\frac{1}{2}bh\) \(13=\frac{1}{2}x(1+6x)\)
