Hello forum members,
I have a math problem that I need help solving. It is a word problem. I know how to use the Quadratic Formula but I am having trouble putting the word problem into standard form. Here is the question...
Suppose you have an outdoor pool measuring 25ft by 10ft. You want to add a cement walkway around the pool. If the walkway will be 1ft thick and you have 304ft^3 of cement, how wide should the walkway be?
Thanks for your help!!
