a rectangular swimming pool can hold 1,408 cubic feet of water. The pool is 22' long and 4' deep. What is the width of the pool

Accepted Solution

[tex]\boxed {\boxed {\text {Volume = Length x Width x Height}}}[/tex]

Given volume, length and height, find width:

[tex]1408 = 22 \times 4 \times \text {width}[/tex]

[tex]1408 = 88 \times \text {width}[/tex]

[tex]\text {width} = 1408 \div 88[/tex]

[tex]\text {width} = 16 \text { feet} [/tex]

[tex]\boxed {\boxed {\text {Answer: The width is 16 feet}}}[/tex]
