How many 50cm*50cmcm paving stones does Mr Davies need to surround a pond 3m*4m in size. Could someone please explain why answer says 32 and not 48. Is there something I am missing? I am working it to be 48.

Hi hopefulwoman,

I think he needs to put the paving stones around the outside of the pool, so he lays down the following:
6 stones around each of the 3m lengths, so 12 stones
8 stones around each of the 4m lengths, so 16 stones
1 stone in each corner, so 4 stones

Total of 32 stones.
