  1. Please explain me the 7th problem in more detail

  2. @ 7th Question
    ->A and B Pipes filled 2/3 of tank in first 4 minutes
    ->This 2/3 should be Emptied by C while A and B continues to
    ->This can be calculated as follows
    x/5-(x/15+x/10)=2/3 ; (bcz work to be done is emptying
    negative sign goes to the pipes that
    are filling)
    ->Solving we get x=20

  3. 10 ka koi or method hai kya

  4. @10
    The tank is already filled so the work to be done is emptying it
    let C can empty in x mins
    1/x-(1/5+1/7.5)=1/60 ;(given it is done in 1 hour i.e 60 mins)
    solving we get x= 20/7
    Given C can empty 14 ltrs in 1 minute
    then ? ltrs in 20/7 minutes
    solving we get 40 ltrs
