- The equation :

Area = length x width

- Substitute the values in :

Area = (x - 5)(x - 5 + 22)

(Note : the 'x' is for the algebraic expression x in the example above)

- Now you have to simplify the second parenthesis:

Area = (x - 5)(x + 17)

- Now expand :

Area = x^2 + 17x - 5x - 85

- Simplify by collecting like terms :

Area = x^2 + 12x - 85

(Note : x^2 means x squared)

Now you have your answer as:

x^2 + 12x - 85 feet^2
