**Q1. If two pipes work simultaneously, a tank is filled in 12 hours. One pipe fills the tank 10 hours faster than the other. How many hours does the faster pipe alone take to fill the tank?**

15 hours

18 hours

20 hours

12 hours

14 hours

Solution:

Faster Pipe = x hours → x + 10 unit per hour

Slower pipe = x + 10 hours → x unit per hour

According to question,

12(x+10)+12x = x (x+10)

x = 20

So, faster pipe alone takes 20 hours to fill the tank.

Slower pipe = x + 10 hours → x unit per hour

According to question,

12(x+10)+12x = x (x+10)

x = 20

So, faster pipe alone takes 20 hours to fill the tank.
