how many gallons of water are in the pool.

(1cubic foot of water = 7.48 gallons of water)

well for the volume of the water i got 40,000 cubic feet

then for the gallons i thought that you would take 40,000 and divide it by 7.48 and get 5347.59 is this correct

**Damon**, Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 7:38pmvolume = 100*10*40 ft^3 = 40,000 ft^3 correct

However when doing units, make sure the ones you do not want cancel

40,000 ft^3 * (7.48 gal/ft^3)

ft^3 on the top cancels ft^3 on the bottom and gallons are left

so

299,200 gallons
