Hi MathRevolution,

Please be more dilligent in posting Qs.
Either you do not put mathematical signs, which makes Q impossible to comprehend OR you mention 'above figure' but do not attach it ..

As you can see from the question, rug’s area is 120 and the length is 2 feet longer than the width.
Hence, we can obtain a figure like the one below. So, if we calculate, we get (12+4)(10+4)-12*10=104. The correct answer, thus, is E.
