I have a pipe, which can fill water in a beaker in 6 hours. But, there is a hole at the bottom of the beaker that can empty the same beaker which is full of water in 8 hours.

How much time (in hours) will the pipe take to fill the beaker. If the hole is also opened?

1/6 - 1/8 = 1/x    Solve for x

4/24  - 3/24=1/x

x = 24 hrs
