31 The area of a rectangle is represented by x^{2} −
5x − 24. If the width of the rectangle is represented by x − 8,
express the length of the rectangle as a binomial.

32 A method for solving 5(x − 2) − 2(x − 5) = 9 is shown below. Identify the property used to obtain each of the two indicated steps.

33 State the equation of the axis of symmetry and the coordinates of the vertex of the parabola graphed below.
