3.) One pump can fill a tank with oil in 4 hours. A second pump can fill the same tank in 3 hours. If both
pumps are used at the same time, how long will they take to fill the tank?

1/4  +   1/3 =1/T

1/T = 7/12        Take the reciprocal of both sides

T =12/7 =1 5/7 - hours =~ 1 hour and 43 minutes for both pumps to fill the tank.

Take the reciprocal: 1/3 + 1/4= 7/12. So, 12/7=1 5/7 hours.

1/3 + 1/4  =  1/ Total Time Working Together

 

4/12  + 3/12 =  1 / T

 

7 /12  = 1 / T       [ remember that we can write ]

 

12 / 7  =  T / 1

 

12/ 7  = T     

 

T = 12/7 hrs ≈     1.7 hrs  =    1 + .7(60)  =   1 hr 42 min
