## Homework Statement

A swimming pool is 50m long and 20m wide. Its depth decreases linearly along the length from 3m to 1m. It is initially empty and is filled at a rate of 1m^3/min. How fast is the water level rising 90 minutes after the filling began?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm really lost on this problem, so my attempt at a solution isn't much of one. I assume that I will be using two separate volume formulas: one for the area with the sloped bottom, and one for the rectangle above that. Beyond that I'm lost.
