need help converting these
Firstly, I don't know on which board I should post these types of problems, so I just came here instead. If you could, could you show your work in getting the answer, so I could understand for myself?

a) 2070 ft3 s-1 to m3 s-1

(the -1 is an exponent on s)

b) A swimming pool is being built with length 164 feet and width 25 feet. What will the area of the pool be in 1) English Units and 2) SI Units.

b) 164ft x 25t = $4100ft^2$

$4100ft^2{(\frac{.3048m}{1ft})}^2$ = 380.902 $m^2$

Do the same for A using the conversion factor of feet to meters
