    Answer:

    x-\frac{1}{2}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The area of the rectangular window is equal to the product between the length of the window and its width:

    A=L\cdot W (1)

    where

    A is the area

    L is the length

    W is the width

    In this problem, the area of the glass window is

    A=2x^2+5x-12

    This can be rewritten as

    A=(x+4)(x-\frac{1}{2}) (2)

    The two expressions, in fact, are equivalent.

    Also, we know that the width  is

    W=x+4 (3)

    By comparing (1) with (2) and (3), we notice immediately that

    L=x-\frac{1}{2}

    Therefore, this is the length of the glass pane.
