| 1. Let’s denote the width of the pool as X m.

2. To find the width of the pool, let’s make an equation if it is known that the length of the pool is 5 times its width, and the width is 20 m less than the length of the pool.

5 * X – X = 20;

4 X = 20;

X = 5 m.

Answer: The width of the pool is 5 meters.
