Accepted Solution

A:

Let us denote the total land area of Tennessee by [tex] T [/tex]. Now, It has been given to us that the total land area of Tennessee is about 53927 square miles.Therefore, [tex] T=53927 [/tex]It has also been given to us that the total land area of the United States is about 3483511 square miles more than the total land area of Tennessee.Let us denote the total land area of the United States by [tex] U [/tex].Now, if the total land area of the United States (denoted by [tex] U [/tex]) is 3483511 square miles more than the total land area of Tennessee (which is 53927 square miles and is denoted by [tex] T [/tex]), then that means that we have to add 3483511 square miles to the total land area of Tennessee to get the total land area of the United States. This can be written in the equation form as:[tex] U=3483511+T=3483511+53927=3537438 [/tex]Thus the total area of the United States is 3537438 square miles.
