The length of a pool is 3 feet more than twice its width. If the perimeter of the pool is 72 feet, find the dimensions of the pool by writing and solving a system of equations.

1. 1
1. L = 2W + 3

2L + 2W = 72

Substitute 2W+3 for L in second equation and solve for W. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for L. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
