liters in the pond to start.
Let W represent the total amount of water in the pond (in liters), and let T represent the total number of minutes that water has been
added. Write an equation relating W to T. Then use this equation to find the total amount of water after 16 minutes.
Total amount of water after 16 minutes: liters
Multiply liters per minute by number of minutes and add that to the starting amount.
W = 34t + 400
now replace t with 16 and solve:
W = 34(16) = 400
W = 544 + 400
W = 944
After 16 minutes there are 944 liters in the pond
