### Pipe and cistern important shortcut formulas

1.If two pipes A and B
A can fill a tank in x hrs
and B can fill the same tank in y hrs
If both pipes are opened simultaneously ,then time taken to fill the tank is

Work done by both pipes together in 1hr=1/x +1/y

2.If two pipes A and B

A can fill a tank in x hrs
and B can empty the same tank in y hrs
If both pipes are opened simultaneously ,then time taken to fill the tank is =

Work done by both pipes together in 1hr=1/x -1/y

3.If three pipes A ,B and C

A can fill a tank in x hrs
B can fill the same tank in y hr
and C takes z hrs for filling the same tank.
If three pipes are opened simultaneously ,then time taken to fill the tanks is

Work done by three pipes together in 1hr=1/x +1/y +1/z

Example: A can fill the tank in 28hrs

B can fill the tank in 14 hrs
and C takes 7hrs.
If all three pipes are opened simultaneously ,how long it will take to fill the tank?

Solution:time taken=(28*14*7*)/(28*14 + 14*7 + 28*7)

To solve this quicker  find out LCM(28,14,7)
we get 28
Time taken =28/(28/28 + 28/14 + 28/7)
=28/(1+2+4)
=28/7
=4

4.If A can fill a tank in x hrs,B can fill the same tank in y hr and C takes z hrs for emptying  the same tank.

If three pipes are opened simultaneously time taken to fill the tank is=

Work done by three pipes together in 1hr=1/x +1/y -1/z

Example: A can empty the tank in 28 hrs, B can fill the tank in 14 hrs, and C takes 7 hrs for filling.

If all three pipes are opened simultaneously ,how long it will take to fill the tank?
Solution:time taken=(28*14*7*)/(28*14 - 14*7 + 28*7)
To solve this quicker  find out LCM(28,14,7)
we get 28
Time taken =28/(-28/28 +28/14 + 28/7)
=28/(-1+2+4)
=28/5
=5.6 hrs
=5 hr 36 minutes
