## anonymous 5 years ago A diagram of a new competition swimming pool is shown. if the width of the pool is 25 meters, find the length of the actual pool

1. anonymous

Where is it shown? :) Describe what the pool's dimensions are.

2. anonymous

the length is 15cm and the width is 7.5cm

Setting up a proportion is key here. $\frac{L}{W}=\frac{l}{w}$ left side = BIG LENGTH / BIG WIDTH right side = little length / little width Just fill in the numbers, and cross multiply to solve for the BIG LENGTH. Hope this helps.
