A 2000 L tank containing 550 L of water is being filled with water at the rate of 75 L per minute from a full 1600 L tank. How long will it be before the two tanks have the same amount of water?

**Damon**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 9:10pm550 + x = 1600 -x

2x = 1050

so

525 L moves

time = 525 L / 25 L/min

time=525/75 min
