The area of a rectangle is found by multiplying the base times the height. A rectangle with an area represented by 12x2 + 6x – 8 has a height of 4x. What is the base of the rectangle?
12x2 + 6x -8 is a quadratic equation so divide each term by 4x answer 4x times (3x + 3/2 - 2/x) This means the base is (3x + 3/2 - 2/x)
the answer will be 3x+3/2-2/x
