Answer:4x² – 15x + 9

Step-by-step explanation:To find the area of a rectangle, you multiply the length by the width.

length: 4x – 3

width: x – 3

Multiply these expressions.

(4x – 3)(x – 3)

To multiply two binomials, you want to FOIL them

FOIL: first | outer | inner | last

(4x – 3)(x – 3)

F: 4x • x = 4x²

O: 4x • -3 = -12x

I: -3 • x = -3x

L: -3 • -3 = 9

Combine these values.

4x² – 12x – 3x + 9

Combine the variables that can be combined.

4x²

– 15x+ 9This is the area as an expression.

Hope this helps!
