A cuboid-shaped tank has dimension of m, m, and m. How much time is needed to fill the tank if water is being pumped into the tank at a rate of liters per minute?
Step 1: Find the volume of the tank. Use the formula for the volume of a cuboid.
Step 2: Convert the volume to litres.
There are litres in , so multiply the number of cubic metres by to convert to litres.
Step 3: Find the time needed to fill the tank.
The volume of the tank is equal to the time needed to fill the tank multiplied by the rate it is being filled, so we can find the time needed to fill the tank by dividing the volume by the rate.
