HI All

Three taps were installed to fill a container with water .Tab A and tab B together will take 3 hour to fill the container completely. Tab C and TAB B together will take 4 hour to fill the container completely. Tab A and tab C together will take 6 hour to fill the container completely. How long will it take all three taps to fill the container completely?

thanks

Hi

In 12h,
A+B will fill 4 containers
B+C will fill 3 containers
A+C will fill 2 containers

Adding, we have 2(A+B+C) will fill 9 containers in 12h
2(A+B+C) will fill 1 container in 12/9h = 4/3 h
So, A+B+C will fill 1 container in 2x 4/3h = 8/3 h

cheers.
