How would you go about solving this problem?
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?

    550 + x = 1600 -x
    2x = 1050
    so
    525 L moves
    time = 525 L / 25 L/min

    I think Professor Damon means

    time=525/75 min
