It takes 40 min to fill a water tank, and 60min to drain it. When the water tank is 2/3 full, how many min will it take to drain it? If we try to fill the tank when empty while draining it for 1 min, what fraction of the tank will be filled? How many hours will it take to fill the tank while draining it the entire time?

quiz B. filling takes 40 min ,1min is 1/40

draining takes 60mins,1min is 1/60

therefore you the difference between 1/40 and 1/60 which gives 1/120

quiz c. in 1min 1/120 is filled,meaning 120/120 will take 120 min which is 2 hours
