A rectangular tank measures 60cm by 40cm by 30cm. It is half filled with water. Water is added to the tank at a rate of 13litres per minute and drained out at 9litres per minute. Find the volume of water in the tank after 7 minutes.

    You already have 60x40x15
    or 36000 cm^3 in the half-filled tank
    or you have 36 L in the half-filled tank

    The net increase from that point on is 4 L/min
    So in the next 7 minutes, 28 L are added

    Total volume = 36+28 = 64 L
