The original area of the rectangle isExplanation:width = x

length = x + 2

area of the rectangle = x (x+2)

length = x + 2 + 5 = x+7

Solving this equation, we get

x =5ft

So, original width = 5ft

original length = 5+2ft = 7ft

Thus, original area of the rectangle = 5 X 7ft =

Therefore, the original area of the rectangle is
