You say the pool is 12m wide, but both ends are only 10m wide. I'll assume that's a typo, and the pool is 10m wide. The side view is a trapezoid with bases of 1.3 and 3, and an altitude of 40. So the volume of the pool is (1.3+3)/2 * 40 * 10 = 860 m^3 The volume of ...

hmmm. I see a couple of straight lines, and what may be a point. I fail to see any circles or other curves involved. Maybe a little more explanation will help. Do you want the equation of a circle whose center is on y=1/3x+6, and is tangent to y=x+20? If so, where does (11,9) ...

I assume it means you need to multiply b^2 by something. Since b^8 = b^2 * b^6 b^6 goes into the box. Or, it might mean that b^2 is to be raised to a power. Since 8=2*4, (b^2)^4 = b^(2*4) = b^8 This appears to be just an exercise in working with properties of exponents.
