From rustom: (a) Find the volume of water in swimming pool with vertical ends and sides
. The length measured at the water line is 50 ft. and the breadth is 20 ft. The
bottom of the swimming pool is a plane sloping gradually downward so that
the depth of the water at one end is 4 ft. and 8ft. at the other end.

tile blocks whose glaze surface dimensions are 3in by 6in. , and if the ends
