Question 56

A tank is filled in 5 hours by three pipes A, B and C. The pipe C is twice as fast as B and B is twice as fast as A. How much time will pipe A alone take to fill the tank?


Suppose pipe A alone takes x hours to fill the tank.

Then, pipes B and C will take x/2 and x/4 hours respectively to fill the tank.

1/x+2/x+4/x=1/5⇔7/x=1/5 ⇔x=35hrs
