    Volume Work

    The base of a rectangular tank is 2 feet wide and 4 ft long; the height of the tank is 20 inches. If water is pouring into the tank at the rate of 2 cubic inches per second, how many hours will be required to fill the tank?
    - I couldnt find a way to solve it

    find the volume of the tank in in^3, then divide by 2 \, in^3/sec to get the number of seconds to fill the tank.
