We know that to compute for the area of a rectangle, we can multiply the values of its length and width. Say we have a width of w, if the length of the desktop is 5 inches shorter than twice its width, then
length = 2(w)  5 = 2w  5
Given the dimensions, the area can be expressed as (length)(width) = w(2w5) unitsĀ².
Answer: w(2w 5) unitsĀ²
