1. 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: 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 CIRCUMFERENCE OF POOL B As we can see, pool B has the greater circumference.
