Megan's backyard has a small pond that is 15 feet by 10 feet. Her mother wants her to add a wooden deck pathway around the pond, so that the total area of the pool and deck is 234 ft2. How wide does the pathway need to be to fulfill Megan’s mom’s request?
(15+x)*(10+x)=234Ft^2
can you solve from here?
nancy you made a mistake you considered the width of the walkway from one side of the pond but not the other. therefore you must replace x with 2x
