    Divide the shape in two rectangles, find their respective areas and add them together.

    First equation is fine but if you're going by that then your second one is incorrect. Think about the line length 7x-2 in relation to the 2x at the top.

    Split the diagram into 2 rectangles, and label all of the side lengths of each rectangle and it should become very clear.

    The top length would indeed be 5x-2. Not sure why you multiplied (x+3) by itself there though.

    How do I solve the last 2?

    That's not quite right. I think you would find it easier to expand brackets using a table; do you know how?

    Create a table like this. Since you are multiplying (x+3) by (5x-3), one goes on the top and the other goes on the side. The trick is that you separate the numbers by isolating them in their own squares; like 5x and -2 have different squares, likewise with x+3. Then fill it in by multiplying the corresponding column and row. For example, 5x2 is achieved from x multiplied by 5x . -2x is from -2 times by x.

    Once you fill them in, add them all up and you have your brackets expanded.

    Not quite. Top row is incorrect because x term on the 5 is SQUARED while the one on the -2 is NOT. Therefore you cannot take one away from the other like that.

    Second row, you are missing an x next to the 15.

    No it's simply 5x2-2x.

    It would be 3x2 if it was 5x2-2x2.
    It would be 3x3 if it was 5x3-2x3.
    They powers have to be the same in order to mix.

    That's what I was asking for, the proof.
