Question

Water is flowing from Tank #1 to Tank #2 as shown in the picture. Originally, Tank #1 had 1,540 gallons in it and Tank 2 had 236 gallons in it. Water is draining out of Tank #1 at a ate of 6 gallons per minute and, thus, filling Tank #2 up at a ate of 6 gallons per minute. ) Write an equation for each tank that models the volume of water, v in gallons, as a function of the number of minutes, m, that the water has been flowing. Tank #1: Tank #2: Find out how long it takes, to the nearest minute, for the two tanks to have Will it take longer or shorter than 2 hours? Justify.

Answer:Melody, think about this as below

Step-by-step explanation:when does tank 1 = tank 2 when there is 6 gpm

tank 1 = 1540

tank2 = 236

1540-6x = 236 +6 x

1304 = 12x

108 = x

6*108 = 652 gallons

236+652=888

1504-652=888

in 108 minutes the tanks become equal with 888 gallons each 🙂
