Suppose water flows from a shower at a rate of 0.38 cubic feet per minute. Do you use more water by taking a 14-minute shower or by filling a bathtub with 0.6 cub yards of water, and by how much? Demonstrate strep-by-step solution.

  • problem solving -

    0.6 cubic yd x (27 ft^3/yd^3) = 16.2 ft^3.

    0.38 ft^3/min x 14 min = ? and compare with the above.

  • problem solving -

    Bathtub consumes more water, by 10.88 ft^3
