Level 3

The figure, not drawn to scale, shows an empty tank measuring 20 cm by 15 cm by 15 cm. Water flows from Tap A at a rate of 300 mℓ per minute and from Tap B at a rate of 180 mℓ per minute. Tower X and Tower Y have a base area of 20 cm^{2} and 30 cm^{2} respectively. Water is drained out of the container at a rate of 130 mℓ per minute. Find the height of the water level after 13 minutes.

A rectangular tank measuring 120 cm by 50 cm by 100 cm is 50% filled with water. 10 identical pails of water that are completely filled are then scooped out from it. The water level drops to 45 cm. The remaining amount of water in the tank is later poured into a container that contains 40 litres of water. The water is then drained out through a tap found at the bottom of the container at 10 litres per minute.

Level 3

Water flows into a tank through Tap A and flows out of the container through Tap B. The capacity of a tank is 40 litres. When only Tap A is turned on, the container is completely filled in 16 minutes. When only Tap B is turned on, it takes^{1}_{3} hour for all the water to flow out. If both taps are turned on at the same time,

Level 3

To fill a tank measuring 50 cm by 20 cm by 40 cm completely, it takes Tap A 4 minutes while it takes Tap B only 12 minutes. How long will it take to completely fill the container with water if both the taps are turned on at the same time and 8 cubic containers of edges 10 cm, filled to the brim with water are poured into the tank?
