A basketball court is in the shape of a rectangle. It has a length of (x − 7) meters and a width of (x + 3) meters. The expression below represents the area of the court in square meters. (x − 7)(x + 3) Which of the following simplified expressions represents the area of the basketball court in square meters? − 6x + 3 x2 − 21 x2 − 4x − 21 x2 − 7x + 3
Area = B * h.
x2 − 4x − 21
Area = (x-7)(x + 3) Sue FOIL to Solve.
\[x^2 + 3x - 7x - 21 \]\[x^2 - 4x - 21\]
