This is my textbook problem:
gymnasium is being remodeled. The basketball court
will be similar to an NCAA basketball court, which
has a length of 94 feet and a width of 50 feet. The
school plans to make the width of the new court
45 feet. Find the perimeters of an NCAA court and of
the new court in the school.
I changed it as shown in the PDF (Google Slide) shown.
I am planning to use this problem on Friday in my class so I don’t know how the students will respond yet but I will post after I use it in class.
