Two valves

Water fill the pool by two valves for 11 days. After 7 days the first valve was stopped and the second valve fill pool for 7 days.

How many days took to fill the pool each of the valves individually?

Result

x =  25.67 d
y =  19.25 d

Solution:

x=1/(1/111/(7/(17/11)))=25.67 dx=1/(1/11-1/(7/(1-7/11)))=25.67 \ \text{d}
1x+1y=111 71y=1711  y=7/(17/11)=19.25 d  1x=1111y 1x=111119.25 1x=0.039 x=25.67 d\dfrac{1}{x}+\dfrac{1}{y} = \dfrac{1}{ 11 } \ \\ 7 \cdot \dfrac{1}{y} = 1- \dfrac{ 7}{ 11 } \ \\ \ \\ y = 7 / (1 - 7/11) = 19.25 \ \text{d} \ \\ \ \\ \dfrac{1}{x} = \dfrac{1}{ 11 } - \dfrac{1}{y} \ \\ \dfrac{1}{x} = \dfrac{1}{ 11 } - \dfrac{1}{ 19.25 } \ \\ \dfrac{1}{x} = 0.039 \ \\ x = 25.67 \ d



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
