The Smiths have a pool that is 20 feet by 35 feet.

A 5 foot wide deck completely surrounds the pool.

The average depth of the pool = 6 feet.

How much surface area is covered by the proposed pool deck?

A=LxW

20ft.x35ft=700 ft

I added 5 ft to both to include the deck

25ftx40ft= 1000

I subtract the area of pool from above amount

1000-700= 300 ft.

Is that correct?
