Alfred used a bucket to fill an empty rectangular tank with water. He poured

4 buckets of water into the tank. The tank had a base measuring 80 cm by 30 cm.

He then decided to use a hose to fill the tank with more water until the water level

reached a height of 12 cm. Dennis came and took 2 buckets of water from the

tank. The water level fell by 1 1/2 cm.

(a) What was the capacity of the bucket?

(b) How much water in the tank was filled up using the hose?

(b) How much water in the tank was filled up using the hose?

**HelloRobtlukas!**

\(2V_{bucket}=8dm\cdot3dm\cdot0.15dm\cdot\frac{l}{dm^3}=3.6l\)

\(V_{bucket}=1.8l\)

(a) the capacity of the bucket was 1.8l.

\(4\cdot1.8l+x=(8\cdot 3\cdot1.2)l\\ x=21.6l\)

(b) 21.6l water in the tank was filled up using the hose.
