The rectangle that wraps around the pool is given to be 68 square feet. By putting all three of these areas together, we know that the area of the larger rectangle is equal to the area of the pool plus the area of the walkway that surrounds the pool. So our equation becomes: Finally, we need to solve this equation to find the width of the walkway.
Rearrange the terms for easier multiplication and find the sum of 68 and Combine like terms and subtract from each side.
Since dimensions of a pool and a walkway around a pool cannot be negative our answer is that the width of the walkway is 1 foot. They would need a minimum of 68 bags to complete the project: Let's Practice Question 1 A rectangular garden is surrounded by a walk of uniform width.
The area of the garden is square yards. If the dimensions of the garden plus the walk are 16 yards by 24 yards, find the dimensions of the garden. Question 2 A rectangular flower garden is surrounded by a walkway 4 meters wide.
The flower garden is 6 meters longer than it is wide. If the total area is square meters more than the area of the flower garden, find the dimensions of the flower garden.
