Two taps A and B fill a swimming pool together in two hours. Alone, it takes tap A three hours less than B to fill the same pool. How many hours does it take each tap to fill the pool separately?

## Exercise 6

A faucet takes more than two hours longer to fill a tank than it would with a second faucet working at the same time as the first, where the job can be completed in 1 hour and 20 minutes. How long does it take to fill each one separately?

## Solution of exercise 6

A faucet takes more than two hours longer to fill a tank than it would with a second faucet working at the same time as the first, where the job can be completed in 1 hour and 20 minutes. How long does it take to fill each one separately?

1st Time =

2nd Time =

x=\frac { 14 - 10}{ 6 } x=\frac { 24 }{ 6 }  \qquad

1st Time 4 hours

2nd Time 2 hours

not a solution because the time for the second faucet would be negative.
