Re: three taps a, b, c, together can fill an empty cistern in 10 minutes. the tap a alone can fill it in 30 minutesand the tap b alone 40 minutes. how long will the tap c alone take to fill it
# 1

let the volume of bucket be v
let the speed of water flowing through a be v1,b be v2 ,c be v3
(v1+v2+v3)10=v
30*v1=v
40*v2=v
x*v3=v
{(v/30)+(v/40)+(v/x)} *10=v
by solving we get x=24
