I really need help with a problem. I'm NOT asking for the answer, just some help on how to solve it.

***Pedro has a rectangular kiddie pool with a side length of 5 ft, width of 3 ft, and height of 1 1/2 ft. If the pool is only filled 1/3 full with water, how much water is in Pedro's pool?*** I really don't know how to solve this problem. Please help?

Divide the hight by 3 ( since its 1/3 full) then find the volume using the new number (V=L x W x H)

Everyone else is saying to solve it and then divide it.?
Report as
You can divide by 3rd the beginning or at the end.

find the volume of the full pool: (5x3x1.5) and divide the product by three: Px(1/3)

Then the answer would be 7.5...? Gallons? I don't think it would be feet?

7.5 cubic feet.

Find the area of the pool and the multiply the area by 1/3

Report as

V= lxwxh/3
V=?
try that

Report as

5 x 3 x .5

Report as

V = l x w x h
Then divide by 3 since it is 1/3 full.
V = 5 x 3 x 1.5 = 22.5
22.5/3 = 7.5 cubic feet. ANSWER
