A garden hose takes 14.0 hours to fill a 3500 gallon swimming pool. What is the flow rate of the water in gallons per minute? At this rate, how long would it take the hose to fill an 11,000 gallon pool?

I was going to use the formula for flow rate but I don't have the diameter and it isn't a pipe. Help please? I know it's filling at a rate of 4.167 gallons per minute but I don't know what to do after.

  1. flow rate-3500gal/14hrs*1hr/60min

    time= volume/rate=11,000/(3500/840) gal/min
