    The dimensions for the area of the pool and deck would be (x+10+3) by (x+3). You add 3 to the length and width because that is the extra length for each side of the pool. You set (x+13)(x+3) equal to 1344, then solve. when you find x, plug it in to (x+13) and (x+3) to get the Length and Width, respectively.
