    Answer:

    Pool B has the greater circumference.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Pool A has a radius of 16 feet, and Pool B has a diameter of 9.94 meters.

    We want to see which pool has a greater circumference.

    The circumference of a circle is the distance around a circle or the total length of a circle, and it is given as:

    C = 2\pi r

    where r = radius of the circle

    So that our comparison can be accurate, let us put the dimensions of both pools in a single unit, metre.

    The radius of pool A is 16 feet.

    1 foot = 0.305 metres

    16 feet = 4.88 metres

    The radius of pool A in metres is 4.88 metres

    CIRCUMFERENCE OF POOL A

    C = 2 * \pi * 4.88 = 30.66 m

    CIRCUMFERENCE OF POOL B

    C = 2 * \pi * 9.94 = 62.45 m

    As we can see, pool B has the greater circumference.
