The Colorado River is diverted to flood fields. If the river is flowing at 17,600 ft3/s , how long will it take to flood a 5500 acre field to a depth of 2.00 meters? Note that 1 acre=43560ft2.

This looks like math to me.

5500 acre * 43560ft^2 * 2m * 3.28ft/m * 1s/17600ft^3
= 5500*43560*2*3.28/17600 = 89298s
