A hose fills an empty tank with water at a rate of 15 liters/second. At the same time, water drains from the tank at a rate of 10 liters/second. If the tank has a capacity of 200 liters, in how many seconds will the tank be half full?

A 4
B 8
C 20
D 25
E 40



relative rate for tank being filled and getting emptied = 15-10 = 5
so work 200; half tank 100
100/5 = time = 20 sec
IMO C

Read carefully

15L/1 second - 10L/1 second = 5L/1 second

200L tank HALF FULL
So, consider it a 100L Tank

100L/(5L/1 second)=(100L/1)/(5L/1 second)=100L·1second/1·5L
Cancel the Litres unit
100·1second/1·5=20 seconds
