It depends on how deep the water is over the area it covers. 1 gallon = 231 cubic inches. If the water is 1 inch deep, it can cover an area of 231 square inches. If it's 231 inches deep, it can only cover an area of 1 square inch.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How many gallons of water would it take to fill a 2 inch pipe 504 feet long?

It would take 82.2857 gallons of water to fill a 2 inch pipe 504 feet long. The volume of the pipe is 19,008 cubic inches and there are 231 cubic inches of water in a gallon.


How do you measure 1 gallon of plums?

Find a container with gallon gradients (lines) at 1 gallon and 2 gallons. Fill the container with one gallon of water. Now add the plums until the water level reaches the two gallon line. Remove the water, and you now have 1 gallon of plums.

How many gallons of water fill a tank 93 inches long and 41 inches diameter?

231 cubic inches = 1 gallon. To find out how many gallons will fill the tank, you must multiply the area of the tank by the depth to find the volume and then divide by 231 to figure how many gallons will fill it: volume of 41 inch dia by 93 inch depth = 122,783.93 cubic inches divided by 231 = 531.532 gallons. PS: I assumed the 41 inches diameter is the inside diameter. If it is the outside diameter, the thickeness of the walls need to be subtracted in order to find the inside diameter for a better calculation. The formula for Area is R (radius = half of diameter) squared X Pi (3.1416).


How many gallons of water is needed to fill a 4 inch by 12 inch tube?

You didn't provide enough information to fully answer this question. Volume requires 3 dimensions, and you provided 2 (or didn't fully explain the 3rd). To determine volume, you need length, width and height LxWxH=Volume. I'll explain how to solve this math problem the best way I can. 1 gallon = 231 cubic inches http://www.onlineconversion.com/volume.htm Now that you know there are 231 cubic inches per gallon, determine the volume of water you need in inches. I'm going to guess you were meaning the tube is 12 inches long and either a 4 inch diameter. Volume of a cylinder can be acheived by multipling the area of the base times height. Assuming your cylinder is a perfect circle with an inside diameter of 4 inches, the base would be PI * r2 or 3.141592 * (2*2) or 12.535668 inches square. Multiply this times the height (12), and you'll get the cubic inches required to fill the cylinder...or 150.796416 cubic inches. Divide by 231 (cubic inches per gallon) equalling .6528 US gallons required to fill the tube.

You then empty the 3 gallon jug and pour the 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallong jug into the 3 gallon jug Now you have 2 gallons of water in the 3 gallon jug and no water in the 5 gallon jug Fill the 5 gallon jug up with water Now you have a full 5 gallon jug and a 3 gallon jug with 2 gallons of water top off the 3 gallon jug with water from the 5 gallon jug Now you have 4 gallons of water in the 5 gallon jug and a full 3 gallon jug empty the 3 gallon jug Now you have an empty 3 gallon jug and 4 gallons of water in a 5 gallon jug. Fill the 3 gallon jug using the water in the 5 gallon jug. You now have a 3 gallon jug full of water and 1 gallon of water in a 5 gallon jug
