The question is asking us to determine the length of the floor of a rectangular deck. The rectangular deck has an area of 600 squared feet. The floor is 20 feet wide ( W = 20 ft ). Formula for the area of the rectangle is: A = L x W. 600 = L X 20; L = 600 : 20; L = 30 ft. Answer: The floor is 30 ft long.
