Q:
# a square swimming pool is surrounded by a cement walkway with a uniform width.The swimming pool has a side length of (x-2) feet. The side length of the entire square area including the pool and the walkway is (x+1) feet. Write an expression for the area of the walkway. Then find the area of the cement walkway when x=7 feet.

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]Area\ of\ the\ walkway = (x+1)^2[/tex]

[tex]Area\ of\ the\ walkway = (x+1)^2 = (7+1)^2 = 8^2 = 64[/tex]

[tex]Area\ of\ the\ walkway = (x+1)^2 = (7+1)^2 = 8^2 = 64[/tex]
