2) A sink can be filled by a pipe in 6 minutes but it takes 12 minutes to drain a full sink. If both the pipe and the drain are open, how long will it take to fill the sink?

    a)

    ratecombined=rateM+rateY
    shed/18 = shed/(timeY-15) + shed/timeY

    Y* (Y-15)=18( Y + (y-15))
    y^2-15Y=36Y-270
    y^2-51Y+270=0
    (y-45)(Y-6)=0

    y=45, M=30
