Fill a pool with water

  • 1
  • Locked
Today our task is to fill a pool with water. In doing so, we mustn't drown anyone, but we also don't want to hold back: we'll fill it to the brim! The filling method will take the dimensions of the pool. We will assume that it is a parallelepiped, i.e. it has a well-defined length, width and depth. And the method will return the required amount of water. In liters.

Here is the trick, the dimensions are in meters and 1 meter cube = 1000 litres. :)

Found this hint online - The formula for the volume is then equal to the area of that circle times the height of the cylinder. Dividing the volume (in cubic centimeters) of the shape by 1,000 will give you the volume in liters (L).

At first I tried using a double for the variable in the getVolume method and it didn't work. Then after a little digging i found that you need a "long" variable. I didn't know about that variable type before and I'm wondering weather I missed it or if it just wasn't mentioned

There should be some hint that the dimensions are meant to be meters in the hints, too. I plain overlooked it in the description.

I have the correct formula, and getVolume(int, int, int) is returning 250000 in a long. The "verify" is not working and says I am not returning the correct volume for the last step.

1 meter cubic = 1000 liters

so to learn code we need to have science as background,,,,!

The task involves converting cubic meters into liters. Google how many liters in 1 cubic meter. Then you can figure out the solution. The solution can be accomplished with 1 line of code.

just multiply by 1000 Sir Hilbert.

There is a mistake in "Example output". If you multiply 25, 5 and 2 than you get 250, but in "Example output" you can see "250000" and output of your code is compared with this value. So if you want to pass this exercise write in getVolume such string: ...

There is no mistake there. Linear dimensions (a b c) given in meters, but the method should return the number of liters of water.
