# Tributaries 7630

The polder has two tributaries. A larger inflow will fill an empty polder in 12 hours. The polder is already a quarter full. If we open both tributaries, the polder will be filled in 6 hours. How long would it take for a smaller inflow to fill an empty polder?

The first inflow fills the tank in 4 hours. The second tributary in 6 hours. How long will it take to fill both tributaries simultaneously, but the species will start an hour later? - A tank 2

A tank can be filled by a pipe A in 3 hours and by pipe B in 5 hours. When the tank is full, it can be drained by pipe C in 4 hours. If the tank is initially empty and all three pipes are open, how many hours will it take to fill up the tank? - Swimming pool 6

We open the first pipe, and then after two hours, we open the second pipe without closing the first. The swimming pool will be filled with both pipes in 4 hours. If we open the first pipe itself, it will fill the pool 1.5 times faster than the second pipe
