### Question 1

Two taps X and Y can fill a tank in 7 and 9 minutes respectively. Both the taps are turned on at the same time. After how many minutes is the tank completely filled?

### Question 2

A tank is (2/9)^{th} filled with water. When 64 liters of water are added, it becomes (2/5)^{th} filled. What is the capacity of the tank?

### Question 3

Two taps X and Y can fill a tank in 4 and 13 minutes respectively. Both the taps are turned on at the same time. After how many minutes is the tank completely filled?

### Question 4

Two taps X, Y and Z can fill a tank in 4, 16 and 6 minutes respectively. All the taps are turned on at the same time. After how many minutes is the tank completely filled?

**A**

$2{2/23}$ mins.

**B**

$3{5/22}$ mins.

**C**

1 mins.

**D**

$4{17/25}$ mins.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the time be x mins. Then sum of works done by X, Y and Z = 1. $x/4 + x/16 + x/6 = 1$. Solving, we get x = $2{2/23}$. Or use the shortcut ${abc}/{ab + bc + ca}$. Another thing, instead of solving the entire calculation, you can keep an eye on the options to find the nearest answer.

### Question 5

Two taps A and B can fill a tank in 16 and 32 minutes respectively. Both the taps are turned on at the same time. After how many minutes should B be turned off so that the tank can be filled in 12 minutes?
