From Natalie:

Hi Maths Central,

I am having trouble with quadratic equations. The question is:

Calculate the length 'l' of a rectangular pool by creating and solving a quadratic equation.

1. The rectangular pool is of equal area to a square pool, and a circular pool (5.70m^2).
2. The length of the rectangular pool must be 2m longer than the width 'w'.

Thank you so, so much for your help, Maths Central!
