Q:
# A 21,000 gallon swimming pool contains 9000 gallons of water when a hose is placed in the pool and begins adding water at a rate of 1500 gallons per hour.Use the Segment tool to plot a graph representing the volume of water in the pool over time from when the hose is placed in the pool until the pool is full.Will give brainiest

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: The below graph representing the volume of water in the pool over time from when the hose is placed in the pool until the pool is full.Explanation:It is given that the capacity of pool is 21,000 gallon.At initial stage the pool contains 9000 gallons.The capacity of empty pool is,[tex]21,000-9,000=12,000[/tex]The water is being added at the rate of 1500 gallons per hour.So the pool will completely full after,[tex]time=\frac{12000}{1500} =8 hours[/tex]The two points are (0,9000) and (8,21000).Plot these two points on a coordinate plane and joint them by a straight line.And the volume is represented by the equation,[tex]y=9000+1500x[/tex]Since 9000 is initial value and rate of range is 1500.
