Answer:

7.1 hoursStep-by-step explanation:

Given data

Let the number of hours taken to fill the pool be x

the current quantity is 1/2 the capacity of the pool

we are given that the rate of flow = 4.75 in per hour

let the total amount of water after x hours be y, the expression for the quantity of water is given as

if y= 33.75 in, let us find x

divide both sides by 4.75

Hence, it will take 7.1 hours
