@ganeshie8 ?

2. phi

do you know how to find 11% of 45 ?

3. anonymous

do you do 45/x 11/100?

4. anonymous

or is it the other way around

5. phi

just 45 times 11/100

oh ok

7. phi

11% of the total depth every 1 second. that will be how far down it goes in 1 second to find how far down in 2 seconds multiply by 2 so the answer is $\frac{2\cdot 45\cdot 11}{100}$

8. phi

it looks like they are using negative numbers to show the distance below the water surface

ok i know the answer now. thank you
