Please help me solve !!!
Water flows into a swimming pool at the rate
of 9.83 gal/min.
If the pool dimensions are 33.4 ft wide,
44.9 ft long and 19.9 ft deep, how long does
it take to fill the pool? (1 gallon = 231 cubic
Answer in units of min
1 gallon = 231/1728 = 0.13368 ft^3
Pool volume = 33.4x44.9x19.9
= 29,843 ft^3
= 223,243 gallons
Divide that by the fill rate for the time required.
I have never heard of a swimming pool that deep
