3-83.

Find the dimensions of the generic rectangle at right. Then write an equivalency statement (length · width = area) of the area as a product and as a sum. Homework Help ✎

First, find the dimensions of the rectangle.

(*x* + 3) and (*x* − 5)

Area = (Length)(Width)

(*x* + 3)(*x* − 5) = *x*^{2} − 2*x* − 15
