 Question 184441: The owner of a daycare center plans to have a rectangular sandbox built in the outdoor play area. The width (in feet) of the sandbox is given by the polynomial 2x-5. If the length of the sandbox is designed to be 10 feet longer than the width, write a polynomial that represents the area of the sandbox.Answer by Alan3354(34677)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The owner of a daycare center plans to have a rectangular sandbox built in the outdoor play area. The width (in feet) of the sandbox is given by the polynomial 2x-5. If the length of the sandbox is designed to be 10 feet longer than the width, write a polynomial that represents the area of the sandbox. -------------- W = 2x+5 L = W + 10 = 2x+15 Area = L*W Area = (2x+5)*(2x+15) Area = 4x^2 + 40x + 75 square feet
