Pipe A will fill a tank in 24 minutes and pipe B will fill the same tank in 36 minutes. There is a drain pipe which will empty the tank in 30 minutes. If the drain pipe is opened 8 minutes after A and B are opened, when will the tank be full?
Hi Assume the Volume of tank is 360 ( i chose this because its the LCM of 24,30 and 36).
So flow of pipe A = 15 L/min
Flow of Pipe B = 10 l/min
Flow of drain pipe and pipe a and B are open = 25-12=13 L/Min
Flow when pipe A and B are open = 15+10 =25 L
Drain = 12 L/min
so 8 mins only and B are open volume filled = 25*8= 200 L.
So time required to fill the remaining volume (360-200) = 160 / 13
= 12.3 Mins
So Tank will fill up in 12 Mins and 18 seconds.
