2
Looking at Area Area of a rectangle can be written as an expression of the length x width or lw. One or more of the dimensions may even be represented with a variable. Write the expressions for #1-7 on your worksheet.

3
Looking at length The length of a segment that has two parts can be written as a sum…. Complete # 8-10 on your worksheet.
