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?

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.)
