# A swimming pool is 12 meters, long 6 meters wide, and 1 meter deep. Find the quantity of water in the pool.

We will use the concept of the volume of the cuboid in order to find the quantity of water in the pool.

## Answer: A swimming pool is 12 meters, long 6 meters wide, and 1 meter deep. The quantity of water in the pool is 1000 × 72 = 72000 liters

Let us see how we will use the concept of volume of the cuboid in order to find the quantity of water in the pool.

**Explanation:**

Since the pool is in the shape of a cuboid, we will use the formula to find the volume of the cuboid.

The volume of cuboid = length × breadth × depth

The volume of the swimming pool = 12 × 6 × 1 = 72 m^{3}

Now we know that 1 m^{3} = 1000 liters

### Hence the volume of water in the swimming pool = 1000 × 72 = 72000 liters
