Shemy placed three empty tanks side by side. The smallest tank has a crack at its side and the base area of each tank is 16 cm2. After she turned on the tap for 64 minutes, the height of the water in the smallest tank became 6 cm although 0.5 mℓ of water is leaking out of the crack per minute. Find the rate of flow of water from the tap. Give the answer in mℓ/min.

The diagram shows 3 containers of different dimensions, each separated by a partition. Tank C, measuring 20 m by 15 m by 21 m, is filled with water to its brim. Tank B is an empty cuboidal container with a length of 10 m. Slider 1 is lifted to release 14 of the water from Tank C to Tank B, after which the partition is slid down to separate Tank C and Tank B. Next, Slider 2 is removed and some water from Tank B flows into Tank A such that the height of the water level of Tank B and Tank A is 7 m.
  1. What is the length of Tank A?
  2. How many m3 of water are there in Tank B?

34 of a rectangular tank, 90 cm by 8 cm by 5 cm, is filled with water. A cubical container of edge 18 cm is filled with water to a depth of 15 cm. If the water in the rectangular tank is transferred to the cubical container until it is filled to its brim, how many litres of water will be left in the rectangular tank?

The figure is not drawn to scale. An empty Tank A measures 50 cm by 20 cm by 40.5 cm. Tank B with a base area of 1000 cm2was completely filled with water. Ronald poured 12 of the water from Tank B into Tank A. The water filled 70% of Tank A. What was the height of Tank B? (Correct the answer to 2 decimal places.)

A rectangular tank measuring 35 cm by 26 cm by 12 cm is completely filled with oil. Oil from the tank is poured into an empty cubical container of edge 18 cm until the cubical container is half-filled. What is the height of the oil in the tank after some oil is poured out? Correct the answer to 1 decimal place.
