### Which of the following is a simplified expression for the area of a square with side length of (y + 5) feet?

D.
Explanation
The correct answer is (y + 5)^2. This is because the area of a square is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself. In this case, the side length is (y + 5) feet, so the area can be simplified to (y + 5)^2.
