Cameron has decided to dig out a swimming pool in his backyard with the dimensions outlined below. Unfortunantly, he had only one rectangular barrow (dimensions 60 cm x 50 cm x 30 cm) to move the dirt out to the front yard where a local garden supplies company will pick it up.

Diagram not drawn to scale!

a) if the barrow is filled level with it’s top, what volume of soil can it carry?

Well I did on my calculator 60 by 50 by 30 and I got 90,000 is that possibly right?

b) what volume, in cm3 of soil has to be removed from the pool?

Would it be 1.2 by 7.5 by 14.5 by 2.3 by 5m?

c) How many Trips are required with the barrow?
