The figure is not drawn to scale. It shows a tank made from two connected cubical containers, Cube A and Cube B. The tank is filled with some water. Cube A is 34 filled with 6000 mℓ of water while Cube B is completely filled with water. The height of the water level in Cube A is 4 cm higher than that in Cube B. Water is then drained from the tank and the height of the new water level is 5 cm. What is the volume of the water drained in mℓ?

A rectangular tank, 80 cm by 50 cm by 40 cm, is filled with water to a height of 5 cm. The ratio of the volume of water in the tank to that in a pail is 5: 2. If 23 of the pail is filled with water, find
  1. the volume of the pail,
  2. the minimum number of such pails to fill the tank

A rectangular container 100 cm by 50 cm by 45 cm was 20% filled with water. A tap was turned on to fill it up with water at a rate of 9ℓ /min. Every 30 seconds after the tap was turned on, an iron ball of volume 500 cm3 was added to the container. How many iron balls of the same volume would there be in the container when the container is 100% filled with water?

This figure is not drawn to scale. A rectangular glass tank 72 cm by 50 cm by 35 cm has 2 compartments, X and Y, with a water height of 30 cm in X and 15 cm in Y. A hole in the slider caused water to leak from X to Y. It was found that the water level in both compartments became the same after some time.
  1. What is the height of water in the tank now?
  2. It took 1 12 h for the water in both compartments to reach the same level. Assuming that water leaked at a constant rate, how much water flowed from X to Y in 1 minute? Express the answer to 1 decimal place in cm³.

A tank is to be filled to the brim. Tap A takes 20 minutes to fill the tank while Tap B takes 15 minutes to fill it. How long will it take to completely fill the tank with water if both the taps are turned on at the same time? Leave the answer in minutes and round off to 1 decimal place.

Level 3 PSLE
Two rectangular tanks are shown. At first, Tank X was empty and one quarter of Tank Y was filled with water. Both taps were turned on at the same time and water from both taps flowed at the same rate of 1.6 litres per minute. How much time will it take for the height of the water to be the same in both tanks? (1 litre = 1000 cm3 )

Level 3
The figure is not drawn to scale. At first, Tank A, measuring 60 cm by 10 cm by 40 cm was empty and one third of Tank B, measuring 50 cm by 20 cm by 36 cm, was filled with water. Both taps were turned on at the same time and water from both taps flowed at the same rate of 1.2 litres per minute. How long did it take for the height of the water to be same in both tanks?

Level 3
The figure is not drawn to scale. It shows a container made of two connected cubical tanks, A and B. Tank A is sealed at the top and completely filled to the brim. Tank B is 35 filled with 129600 mℓ of water. The height of the water level in Tank B is 1 cm higher than that in Tank A. The height of Tank B is 60 cm. Water is then drained from the container and the height of the water level from the base falls to 30 cm.
  1. What is the capacity of Tank B?
  2. What is the volume of water in the tank now in litres?

Level 3
The figure is not drawn to scale. It shows an empty container made up of a cuboid, measuring 40 cm by 25 cm by 25 cm and 2 similar cubes of sides 5 cm. Line A is 10 cm. 12.5 ℓ of water is poured into the top cube into the cuboid.
  1. What is the height of the water level from the base of the container?
  2. How much more water in cm3 must be poured in so that the water fills up half of the top cube?
