# Put 1/2 cup of chlorine in every 5000 gal. of water. I pool is 30,000 gal.Can anyone solve?

Question:Al is a pool cleaner. The directions say to 1/2 cup of chlorine per day for each 5000 gallons of water. The pool holds 30,000 gallons of water.
How much chlorine should Al put in each day?
How many days will a 6-quart jug last?

30000 divided by 5000 = 6 - 1/2 cups per day which is 3 cups

2 cups = 1 pint
2 pints = 1 quart
so 4 cups = 1 quart
Then there are 4 times 6 or 24 cups in the 6-quart jug

24 divided by 3 = 8 days
30000/5000=6 6*1/2=3
3cups of chlorine each day
2cups to a pint
4pints to a quart
8cups to a quart, so 8*6=48
48/3cups=16
6-quart jug lasts 16 days
6 cups for 30, 000
48 days for 6 qts
