60L x 1/2 (hour 1) = 30 L leaving 30L.

30L x 1/3 (hour 2) = 10 L leaving 20L.

20L x 1/4 (hour 3) = 5 L leaving 15L.

15L x 1/5 (hour 4) = 3 L leaving 12L.

12L x 1/6 (hour 5) = 2 L leaving 10L.

Note that the denominator of the fraction is 1 more than the time; therefore, t + 1.

60L x 1/(t+1) = 10 L

solve for t = 5 hours. Actually, you would need 1 second longer to have less than 10L. Check my thinking. Check my arithmetic.

3=60(30)^(x/1590)

3=60(30)^(x/1590)
