## Homework Statement

A pool is 20 ft wide, 40 ft long, 3 ft deep at the shallow end, and 9 ft deep at its deepest point. If the pool is shaped as shown (I attached a picture), and is being filled at a rate of 8 ft^3/min, how fast is the water level rising when the depth at the deepest point is 5ft?

## Homework Equations

I *think* I need the volume of a trapezoidal prism?

V = Bh = (.5*a*b*h)*w

I am completely lost with the rest of this

## The Attempt at a Solution

All I can figure out is that V=2700. I need a lot of help with this.
