Word Problem

posted by .

A swimming pool 25 m long, 15 m wide, and 150 cm deep is being filled at the rate of 20 L/min. How many hours will be needed to fill the pool?

  • Word Problem -

    volume = 25x15x1.5 m^3 = 562.5m^3

    There are 1000 L in 1 m^3
    So it holds 562000 L
    Then number of minutes = 562000/20 min
    = 28125 minutes
    = 468.75 hours

    (Now if they would only make "time" metric.)

  • Word Problem -

    That would be nice! :)
