    Question Re: about passive

    I don't think your sentences have the passive voice.
    Anyways, "He is having the workers? install the pool" could be changed to
    The workers he has employed will install the pool, while
    "My uncle was used to smoking a number of cigarettes" could be changed to "My uncle had usually smoked many cigarettes" or "My uncle commonly smooed many cigarettes."
    Here are some websites you can use to supplement your knowledge of active and passive verbs.

    Hope this helps!
