The way I did it was the following:

150ft2 = 6x + $$\frac{1}{2}$$( 4 * 6 )  I completed the paraenthasesses

150ft2 = 6x + 12 ftThen after that I subtracted 12 from both sides

138ft2 = 6x after that I divided both side's by 6 and ended with

23 = x

I got the same thing as you  👍👍

area of tabletop  =  area of rectangle + area of triangle

Given that the area of the tabletop is  150 ft2 ,  we can make the equation

150 ft2   =   area of rectangle + area of triangle

150 ft2   =   6x ft2  +  $$\frac12$$(4)(6) ft2

At this point we can cancel the  ft2  on every term

150   =   6x  +  $$\frac12$$(4)(6)

Simplify  $$\frac12$$(4)(6)  to get  12

150   =   6x  +  12

Subtract  12  from both sides.

138  =  6x

Divide both sides by  6

23  =  x
