The figure is not drawn to scale. Mary poured some water into Tank A and Tank B until the water levels in both tanks were the same. She found out that the total amount of water in both tanks was 32 000 mℓ. She then poured another 1200 mℓ of water into Tank A to fill it to the brim. Find the height of Tank A in the end.

The figure shows an empty container. It is made from two cubical tanks. Tanks, Cube A and Cube B, are of sides 10 cm and 20 cm respectively. Cube A is attached to the centre of one of the sides of the Cube B. 5 litres of water is poured into the container such that water flows in to fill part of Cube A. What is the height of the water level in the container? Round off the answer to one decimal place.

Level 3
The figure is not drawn to scale. A and B are two rectangular tanks. The base area of A is 50 cm2 while the base area of B is 40 cm2. Tank A and B contained some water and the height of the water level in Tank A was 43 cm as shown. Dan then poured some water from Tank A into Tank B. After that, the height of the water level in both tanks became 30 cm. What was the height of the water level in Tank B at first?

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 112 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.
