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 

 

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TIME SPENT HELPING ME!

I got the same thing as you laughlaugh👍👍

 

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
