Problem 1: 12 tapes are fitted in a tank, some are inlet water taps and rest are outlet tapes each water tap can fill the tank in6 hours and outlet can empty the tank in 12 hours. lf all tapes are open together then the tank is full in 4 hours. find the number of inlet water taps?
Total number of tapes are=12
Let number of inlet taps=X
The number of out let taps =12-X
X*2*4 + (12-X)*(-1)*4=12
8X-48+4X = 12
12X = 60
The the inlet water tapes are 5 and outlet taps are 7
Problem 2:8 taps are fitted in a tank, some are inlet water taps and rest are outlet tapes each water tap can fill the tank in 12 hours and outlet can empty the tank in 36 hours. lf all tapes are open together then the tank is full in 3 hours. find the number of inlet water taps?
Total number of tapes are=8
Let number of inlet taps=X
The number of out let taps =8-X
X*3*43 + (8-X)*(-1)*3=36
12X = 60
The the inlet water tapes are 5 and outlet taps are 3
Problem 1: The inlet to the tank can fill it in 4 hours while the outlet can empty it in 5 hours both the pipes are opened at 9AM but after some time the out let closed ans it is observed that the tank was closed at 5 PM. At what time was the out let closed?
Difference between 9AM to 5PM is 8 hours
Count 5 hours from 9AM
At 2PM the outlet was closed
Problem 2: Two pipes can fill a tank with water in 15 hours and 12 hours respectively and a third pipe can empty it in 4 hours. If the pipe be opened in order at 8,9 and 11 AM respectively, the tank will be emptied at?
B————>12 L.C.M=60 +5
Difference between 8AM and 11AM IS 3hrs so 4*3=12
Difference between 9AM and 11AM IS 3hrs so 5*2=10
now third also opened then A+B+C=4+5-15=-6
=3 hours 40 min
count 3 hours 40 min from 11AM.
So the tank will be emptied in2 hours 40 minutes
Problem 1:Capacity of tap B is 80% more then that of tap A. If both the tapes are opened simultaneously it takes 45 hours to fill the tank. How long B will take to fill the tank alone?
5 : 9
Problem 2: Three taps A,Band c may fill a tank in 26h, 52h,78h respectively. Tap A and B are opened initially but after 10 hours C is also opened, but A and B started working at 80% of their initial efficiency. Find the total time in which tank will be filled completly?
B————->52 L.C.M 156 3
For 10 hours tap A and B are opened
A and B started working at 80% of their initial efficiency
Problem 1: A leak in the bottom of a tank can empty it in 12 hours. A tap which can added 20 lit per minute is turn on. Both the tapes are opened now, then the tank is emptied in 20 hours. Find the capacity of the tank?
B takes 30 hours to fill the tank
In the above sum 20 is liters 60 is hours are converted in to minutes 30 is hours.
Problem 2:A tank has a leak which would empty in 8 hours. A tap is turned on which admits 3 lit per min into the tank and it is now emptied in 12 hours. How many liters the tank can hold?
A = -8 -3
Problem 3: A tank has a leak which would empty the completely filled the tank in 10 hours. if the tank is full of water and the tap is opened which admits 4 lit of water per min in the tank, the leak 15 hours to empty the tank. How many liters of water does the tank hold?
Problem 3: Two pipes M and N can fill a tank in minutes and min respectively and an exhaust pipe can drain 162 liter water in 1 min. If the tank is full all the three pipes are opened then tank will empty in 4 minutes then capacity of tank will be?
N—————–> L.C.M 100 +8 ()
Problem 1: Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 24 min and 32 min respectively. If both the pipes are opened simultaneously, after how much time B should be closed so that the tank is full in 18 minutes?
First both tapes are open for some time so we write 7x after B tap is closed so we mentioned 4 in the equation.
7*X + 4(18-X) = 96
7X+72-4X = 96
3X = 24
X = 8minutes
Shortcut: We should think in a logical way
whole time tap A is worked so 18*4=72lit are filled by tank A
96-72=24 lit are remaining should filled by tank B
After 8 minutes tap B is closed
Problem 2: Two taps A and B can fill a tank in 48 min and 36 min. if both tapes are opened together after how much time tap A is closed so that the whole tank fill in 25 min 30 sec?
B will work for whole time so lit are filled by tap B
144-102=42 lit are filled by tap A
After 14 min tap A is closed.
Problem 3: A cistern can be filled by two supply pipes in 20 min and 30 min respectively. But a waste pipe can empty it in an hour. Both the supply pipes were opened together to fill the empty cistern, but by mistake the waste pipe was also open. How much later was the waste pipe closed, if the cistern is filled in 14 minutes?
B————->30 L.C.M 60 +2
Waste pipe is closed
Both A and B pipes are worked whole time so 5*14=70
After 10 minutes the waste pipe was closed.
Problem 1: Three tapes A,B and C can fill a tank in 12,15 and 20 hours respectively. If a is open all the time and B and C are open for one hour each alternatively, the tank will be full in?
B——->15 L.C.M 60 +4
A B| A C| A B| A C|
5 4| 5 3| 5 4| 5 3|
2 hrs ———> 17
In 6 hours 51 parts completed remaining 60-51=9 parts will be complete by A and B in 1 hour
so 6+1=7 hrs
In 7 hrs the tank will be full.
Problem 2: Two tapes can fill a tub in 5 minutes and 7 minutes respectively. A pipe can empty it in 3 min. If all the three tapes are kept open simultaneously, when will the tub be full ?
B———–>7 L.C.M 105 +15
Problem 3:A pipe can fill a tank in 12 minutes and another can fill it in 15 minutes, but a third pipe can empty it in 6 minutes. The first two pipes are kept open for 5 minutes in the beginning and then third pipe is also opened. Number minutes taken to empty the cistern is?
B———–>15 L.C.M 60 +4
For 5 minutes first two pipes are opened
9*5=45 lit fill the tank
if we open third pipe it will empty the tank
in this chapter one this we should remember i.e. admits means we should use ‘+’ sign and empty means we should use ‘-‘ sign?
Problem 1: Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 20 min and 30 min respectively. If both pipes are opened together, the time taken to fill the tank is?
A———> 20 +3
Problem 2: A pipe can fill a tank with water in 3 hours. Due to leakage in bottom, it takes hours to fill it. in what time the leak will empty the fully filled tank?
Problem 3:A cistern is normally filled in 9 hours but due to the leak in the bottom, it takes one hour more to be filled. if the cistern is full, in what time will the leak empty it?
