Solution

Total population of a village = 4000
Water required for 4000 persons for one day = 150×4000=600000 litres
Length of tank (l) = 20 m
Breadth (b) = 15 m
Height (h) = 6 m
Volume of tank = l×b×h
= 20×15×6m3=1800m3
Capacity of water in the tank = 1800×1000
l = 1800000 l (1m3=1000l)
Number of days, the water will last
= 1800000600000= 3 days.
