In order to swim one mile in a rectangular pool, I must swim the length of the pool 80 times or swim all the way around the perimeter of the pool 22 times. How wide is the pool? (1 mile = 5,280feet)

so would I take 5280 divided by 80 for a total of 66 then subtract 22 from the 66 and that's the width of the pool?
