Q:

The ratio of efficiencies of two filling pipes is 4 : 5. There is a third emptying pipe which efficiency is two third of the average efficiency of first two filling pipes can empty a filled tank in 36 minutes. In how much time both the filling pipes can fill the tank when it is empty?

A) 16 min B) 12 min
C) 14 min D) 20 min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 12 min

Explanation:

Let the efficiencies of filling pipes is 4p and 5p respectively.

Efficiency of pipe which empty the tank = 2/3 x 9p/2 = 3p

Total work = 3p x 36 = 108p

 

Time to fill the tank by both the pipes = 108p/9p = 12 min.
