# Inlet minus outlet

Water flows into the tank through two pipes and flows out of the third pipe spontaneously. Pipe A itself would fill the tank in 3 hours, pipe B itself would fill in 4 hours, and pipe C would flow out in 12 hours. How long will the tank be full if all three pipes open at the same time?
