#### Solution

Let the breadth of the tank be *b* m.

Length (*l*) and depth (*h*) of tank is 2.5 m and 10 m respectively.

Volume of tank = *l × b × h*

= (2.5 × *b* × 10) m^{3}

= 25*b* m^{3}

Capacity of tank = 25*b* m^{3} = 25000 *b* litres

∴ 25000 *b* = 50000

⇒ *b* = 2

Therefore, the breadth of the tank is 2 m.
