Total length of the pole is 66 feet

1/2 the pole + 1/3 the pole = 5/6 of the pole
the remaining length is 1/6 of the pole
the whole length is 6 * 11 feet = 66 feet

the remaining of the pole is 1/6 of it
11 * 6 = 66 feet

The remaining part of the pole (above water) is 1/6 of the pole and it’s equal to 11 feet, so the whole pole is 66 feet.

Let suppose total length = x
x/2 + x/3 +11 = x
3x + 2x + 66 = 6x
x=66
total length(x) = 66 feet
