6-66.

The length of a rectangle is three units shorter than twice its width. Which expression below could represent the area of the rectangle?

1. $2x^2-3$

1. $2x^2-6x$

1. $2x^2-3x$

1. $(2x-3)^2$

Draw a rectangle and label its width $x$. What should you label the length? Multiply your expressions for the length and width to obtain an expression for the area.
