Luke has a rectangular sheet of wrapping paper that is 49 cm wide and 6x cm long. He cuts off a sheet that is 49 cm wide and 2y cm long to wrap a gift. Write an expression for the area of the wrapping paper that is leftover.
What we start with - What is cut off = Amt left over....so........
(49 * 6x) - ( 49 * 2y) =
49 (6x - 2y) =
49*2 (3x - y) =
98 (3x - y) = amount leftover
