The Clover Pool Company would build a pool that has a perimeter of 72 yards. Mr. Harrison would be allowed to choose the dimensions (length and width) of the pool. He chose the dimensions that would give him the greatest area possible. Step A What are the dimensions of the pool that would give Mr. Harrison the greatest area? ___________________________________________________ Step B Explain why your answer is correct.
