The length of a swimming pool is 22 ft. The width is 40 ft. If the volume of the pool is 2,500 ft³, which equation below could be used to find the depth of the pool?

L=Lenght
W=Width
D=Depth
V=Volume
V=W*L*D
W*L=A
A=Area of a pool
V=A*D Diwide with A
V/A=D
D=V/A
In this case:
A=L*W
A=22*40
A=880 ft^2
D=V/A=2500/880= 2.8409 ft 
the 5 is good

Uh what?
