A basement has a 24-foot by 32-foot rectangular floor. The basement is flooded with water to a depth of 18 inches. Three pumps are used to pump the water out of the basement. Each pump will pump 8 gallons of water per minute. If a cubic foot of water contains 7.5 gallons, how many minutes will it take to pump all of the water out of the basement using the three pumps?

To find the volume of the water in the basement you multiply $$24 \space \text {ft} \times 32 \space \text {ft} \times 18 \space \text {in}$$.

Then using the formula: $$\frac {24 \space \text {ft} \times 32 \space \text {ft} \times 18 \space \text {in}} {\frac{1}{8} \times 3}$$

Figure out the rest yourself.
