Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ404

A rectangular tank, 8 m long and 5 m wide, was 25% filled with water. When Sarin poured another 96 m3 of water into the tank, the tank became 45% filled with water. Find the height of the tank in metres.



            Sarin poured in another 96m3 of water

            The height of water in the Tank increased by = 96 ÷ 8 ÷ 5 = 2.4m

            The volume of water in the tank increase from 25% to 45%

            Since the tank is rectangle and base area at any height is constant (same in base area)

            The increase in water = 45% – 25% = 20% and is 2.4m

                        20% ==> 2.4m

                        10% ==> 1.2m

                        100% ==> 12m

            The height of the tank is 12m
