Math: Pool Party

Will is having a pool party in his new pool.  He wants as many kids as possible to be able to fit inside.  If every kid stands shoulder to shoulder, how many kids can fit in his pool?  How big is his pool?

RDWW 
R:  Read the word problem.
D:  Draw a picture.   
(Remember that you can use the X's to make an array to show the area.)
W:  Write an equation.
W:  Write a sentence.

    1. Good work Alex! Try another one and make sure you use square units. Also, your sentences needs punctuation and a capital letter at the beginning! Mrs. Belinda

    2. Very good Alex but you cannot be sure that there is 25 area? I cannot be sure because you should have labeled your array
