Homework Help: Math (Area)

Posted by Ali on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 9:10pm.

I need help on where to begin with this problem.

You are installing a new deck around your pool. The pool is rectangular with the dimensions 8m by 4m. The deck will surround the pool and will have a width by 2m.

What is the area of the deck?

I know that A=LxW and that the Area of the pool would be 32m(squared). But, how do I go about only finding the area of the deck?
