    3 metres

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the width of the pathway be x

    Area: (9+2x) (4+2x)

    36 + 8x + 18x + 4x²

    4x² + 26x + 36

    Increased area is 150:

    4x² + 26x + 36 = 150

    4x² + 26x - 114 = 0

    2x² + 13x - 57 = 0

    2x² + 19x - 6x - 57 = 0

    x (2x + 19) - 3 (2x + 19) = 0

    (x - 3) (2x + 19) = 0

    x = 3, x = - 19/2
