1) Work in feet, not inches. Obviously no real difference here, but if you are at all like me, working on a unit square makes careless errors in manipulations far less likely.

2) For the algebraic solution, consider the shapes that make up the total area.

3) For the trig solution, consider the lengths that add up to the sides.
