Arithmetic Aptitude :: Pipes & Cistern

9. A tap supplies 8 litres of water per minute into a cistern. A leak at the bottom of the cistern can empty the cistern in 10 hours. A full tank with the tap open is emptied by the leak in 15 hours. What is the capacity of the tank?

Answer: Option C

Explanation :

Tank can be emptied by leak in 1 hour = 1/10
Time required to emptied 1/10 part of tank = 1 hour
Given full tank can be emptied by leak = 15 hours
or time need to emptied 1/15 part of tank by leak = 1 hours
so (1/10 - 1/15) part can be filled by tap = 1 hours
=> 1/30 part can be filled by tap = 1 hours
Time needed to fill the cistern by tap = 30 hours = 1800 minutes
so Capacity of cistern = 8 * 1800 = 14400 liters
