16) A tub in a fitness centre will install a square hot tub in a 6m × 6m room. They want the tub to fill no more than 75% of the room’s area.

a) What is the maximum area of the hot tub?

The maximum area of the hot tub is 27m

b) What dimensions, to a tenth of a metre, will the fitness centre order from the manufacturer? Explain.

The dimensions should be 5.1 by 5.1 so the area does not exceed 75% of the space available.
