A village, having a population of 4000, requires 150 litres of water per head per day. It has a tank measuring 20 m × 15 m × 6 m. For how many days will the water of this tank last?
The given tank is cuboidal in shape having its length (l) as 20 m, breadth (b) as 15 m, and height (h) as 6 m.
Capacity of tank = l × b× h
= (20 × 15 × 6) m3
= 1800 m3
= 1800000 litres
Water consumed by the people of the village in 1 day = (4000 × 150) litres = 600000 litres
Let water in this tank last for n days.
Water consumed by all people of village in n days = Capacity of tank
n × 600000 = 1800000
n = 3
Therefore, the water of this tank will last for 3 days.
