10-181.

Write an equation and use it to solve this problem.

Jill has a $9$-inch tall cylinder that she is using to catch water leaking from a pipe. The water level in the cylinder is currently $2$ inches deep and is increasing at a rate of $\frac { 1 } { 4 }$-inch per hour. How long will it be before the water overflows?

Use an equation in the form $y = mx + b$ to solve for the time at which the water will fill the cylinder completely.

$28$ hours
