    Answer:

    25 minutes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let x = number of minutes

    the following equation can be derived from the question

    9.2 +  2.4x = 109.2 – 1.6x

    the equations are equated together because it is expected the gallons of water in both tanks would be equal after sometime

    collect like terms

    2.4x + 1.6x = 109.2 – 9.2

    4x = 100

    x = 100/4 = 25 minutes
