good quistion:

A pool which was 2/3 full to begin with, was filled at a constant rate for (1 2/3) hours until it was 6/7 full. At this rate, how much time would it take to completely fill this pool if it was empty to begin with?

8 hours 45 minutes
9 hours

Hi,
(6/7-2/3)full is filled in 5/3 hours
So 4/21 full is filled in 5/3 hours
So the filling rate is:
4/21 / (5/3) = 4/35
So the pool is filled completely in:
1/ (4/35) = 35/4 hours

Anyway, this song is so good! Try it!
