To find the length of the pool, we can use the formula for the area of a rectangle:

[ \text{Area} = \text{Length} \times \text{Width} ]

Given that the area of the pool's floor is ( 485 \frac{5}{8} ) square feet and the width is ( 18 \frac{1}{2} ) feet, we can substitute these values into the formula to solve for the length.

[ \text{Length} \times 18 \frac{1}{2} = 485 \frac{5}{8} ]

To solve for the length, divide both sides by ( 18 \frac{1}{2} ).

[ \text{Length} = \frac{485 \frac{5}{8}}{18 \frac{1}{2}} ]

[ \text{Length} \approx \frac{485.625}{18.5} ]

[ \text{Length} \approx 26.25 ]

Therefore, the length of the pool is approximately 26.25 feet.
