7 pipelines are required to fill a tank in 1 hour 30 minutes. How long will it take if only 5 pipelines of the same type are used? [ 2 MARKS ]
Understanding type of variation: 1 Mark
Solution: 1 Mark
Let the time required to fill the tank be d minutes.
Lesser the pipelines more will be the time required to fill the tank. So, this is an inverse proportion.
No.of pipes x time = constant
7 x 90 = 5 x d
d = 126 minutes
