Water flows from tank A to tank B at the rate of 2 litres per minute. Initially tank A has 200 litres in it and tank B has 100 Litres in it. Water drains from tank B at 0.5 litres per minute. After how many minutes are there equal volumes of water in the 2 tanks? Write an equation and solve it.

Tank A: V = 200 - 2x Tank B: V = 100 - 0.5x Where x is the number of minutes passed. Set them equal to each other 200 - 2x = 100 - 0.5x Subtract 100 from each side: 100 - 2x = -0.5x Add 2x to each side: 1.5x = 100 Divide each side of the equation by x: x = 66.66666667
