Pump A can fill a swimming pool in 6 hours and pump B can fill the same pool in 4 hours. The two pumps began working together to fill an empty pool, but after 40 minutes pump B broke down, and pump A had to complete the job alone. The pool was scheduled to open 4 hours after the pumping started. Was it full by then, or did the opening have to be delayed?
