Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are building a concrete deck around a rectangular swimming pool. The pool is three times as long as it is wide. The deck will have a constant width of four feet. In order to have enough concrete, you have calculated the area of the deck to be 832 square feet. What are the dimensions of the pool? Interpret the concepts of the task and translate them into mathematics. (RESTATE THE PROBLEM IN YOUR OWN WORDS)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let the width of the pool be x feet then the length = 3x feet the area of the deck+ pool is 834 feet the width of the pool including the deck = x + 2*4 = x + 8 feet the length ........................................... = 3x + 8 feet therefore the area of the pool + deck (x + 8)(3x + 8) = 834

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not sure exactly what they want I would have thought if you explained your reasoning  using algebra to interpret the problem and working it out would be a sufficient answer.
