The length of the stage should be 3 feet shorter than the width. He calculated the equation to be w2− 3w= 3501.Complete the table to summarize each student's suggestion for figuring out the equation: (2 points: 1 point for each row of the chart)Width = wLength = w – 3Area = w(w-3) = 350StudentConjectureMalcolm's bandmateHis band mate thinks that we need to take away 350 from both sidesand then factor the equation. MalcolmMalcolm thinks that it would be easier to factor if he changes the equation so that it has a square trinomial.
2.Malcolm and his bandmate have different ideas for figuring out the equation. Which one do
