How long will it be before the two tanks have the same amount of water? : Let t = time required for the two levels to be equal : 2k tank amt = 1600 tank amt 75t + 550 = 1600 - 75t : 75t + 75t = 1600 - 550 : 150t = 1050 t = t = 7 hrs ; : Check solution by finding the amt in each 75(7) + 550 = 1600 - 75(7) 525 + 550 = 1600 - 525 1075 = 1075
