    88. Area of a square. Find a polynomial A(x) that represents the area of the shaded region in the accompanying figure.

    96. Compounded semiannually. P dollars is invested at annual interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomial P(1 + r/2)^2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite this expression without parentheses. Evaluate the polynomial if P = $200 and r = 10%.
