Ankita KatdareI will start with some basic formulae that one should know to solve these kind of problems.
What is inlet?
A pipe connected with a tank or cistern that fills it, is called as inlet.
What is outlet?
A pipe connected with a tank or cistern that empties it, is called as outlet.
1. If a pipe can fill a tank in 'n' hours, then the part of tank filled in one hour is 1/n.
2. If a pipe can empty a tank in 'm' hours, then the part emptied in one hour is 1/m.
3. If a pipe fills a tank in 'n' hours and another pipe empties the tank in 'm' hours, such that m>n, then on opening both the pipes, the net part filled in one hour is 1/n  1/m.
4. If a pipe fills a tank in 'n' hours and another pipe empties the tank in 'm' hours, such that n>m, then on opening both the pipes, the net part emptied in one hour is 1/m  1/n.
