## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

In our calculations , at one point, the area of Kelly's plot was expressed as $\quad (x+6)(x+2)$ and Roberto's as $\qquad (x+6)(x+3)$ Roberto is multiplying the same factor (x+6) with a greater number than Kelly, $(x+3)>(x+2)$, so the resultant area of Roberto's plot will be greater than Kelly's.
