**Steve**, Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 5:38pmassuming the tanks are connected at their bases, the oil will equalize when the depth is the same in both tanks.

80*80*h1 = 60*60*h2

h2/h1 = 64/36 = 16/9

9 cm in the larger tank equals 6400*9cm^3 = 57.6 liters

16 cm in the smaller tank holds 3600*16cm^3 = 57.6 liters

scale those depths by 100/115.2 to get the final depths.
