#### Question

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?

#### Solution

Given that
Length of the cuboidal tank(l)=20m
Breath of the cuboidal tank (b) = 15m.
Height of cuboidal tank (h)=6 m
Height of the tank=lxxbxxh=(20xx15xx6)m^3
=1800m^3

=1800000   liters.
Water consumed by people of village in one day
=4000xx150  litres.
=600000  litres.

Let water of this tank lasts for n days

Water consumed by all people of village in n days = capacity of tank

nxx600000=1800000

n=3
Thus, the water of tank will last for 3 days.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
