It takes a hose 2 minutes to fill a rectangular aquarium 12 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 14 inches tall. How long will it take the same hose to fill an aquarium measuring 28 inches by 33 inches by 35 inches?

Volume= 12 x 13 x 14 =2,184 square inches - Volume of first aquarium.

            = 28 x 33 x 35 =32,340 square inches - Volume of second aquarium

[32,340 / 2,184] x 2 = ~29 minutes and about 37 seconds.

....agree with guest's answer with one small issue:  the volumes should be CUBIC inches (not square inches)
