A pool measuring 8 meters by 24 meters is surrounded by a path of uniform width, as shown in the figure. If the area of the pool and the path combined is 720 square meters, what is the width of the path?

(2x+24)(2x+8) = 720    solve for x

4x^2 + 64 x - 528 = 0        Use quadratic formula to find the POSITIVE value of x   ft
