2. You have offered to make a fish pond in the back yard of a senior residence. It needs to be rectangular in shape (2 feet by 3 feet) and 3 feet deep.

(a) How much space (area), in meters squared, will the pond take up?

(b) How many gallons of water will you need to fill the pond? (Remember: One gallon fills 0.1336 cubic feet.)

5. Your next door neighbor is putting in a pool. The pool is 18' by 36', and is filled with water to an average depth of 5.5'. A truck with a cylindrical tank, with a diameter of 9' and a length of 20', will be delivering the water. How many truckloads of water are needed to fill the pool?
