(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rectangular swimming pool 16m x 10m is being filled at a rate of .8m^3/min. How fast is height of the water rising?

2. Relevant equations

V = LWH

3. The attempt at a solution

H = V/LW

(dh/dt) = LW(dv/dt)

(dh/dt) = (10)(16)(.8)

This question looks so easy and I realize Im probablly making a stupid mistake somewhere, could someone point it out for me please?
