    I have a problem and I do not how to solve the problem. So please write how I should solve the question.

    A water well has a diameter of 110mm. Water can be pumped from the well into the tank. Every time the pump is started 40 l of water is pumped away. Find how much the water level of the well is decreasing, ingoring the inflow of water

    Well,
    I solve my own problem! I did this way:
    110mm is the same as 1,1dm
    1,1/2=0,55 (radius)
    then I use the formel πr^2
    π0,55^2=0.95
    40/0.95= 42dm
    42dm=4,2m
    Power of ten: 4,2X10^1 m
