Question

# A pipe can empty the tank in  $$8$$ hours and another  can fill  $$6$$  liters in $$1$$  min. If both pipe opened , the tank is emptied in  $$12$$ hours . The capacity of tank is ?

Solution

## Let capacity of the Tank is 100 %First pipe can empty the tank  = 8 hours = 8 *60 = 480 minWork rate of the pipe  = x/480 liter per min.The work rate of both pipe = x/(12 *60) liter per min = (x / 480) - (x / 720) = Work rate of second pipe720 x - 480x = 6 liter *720 *480240x = 6 *720 *480x= 8640 litres.Mathematics
