Q. 5

# A pump of 5 HP can lift 36000 litres of water in 8 hours. Let’s work out using the method of the Rule of Three how long it will take to lift 63000 litres of water by a 7 HP pump.

formula:-

theorem1:-

The Rule of Three is a Mathematical Rule that allows you to solve problems based on proportions. By having three numbers: a, b, c,

(a)Direct proportions rule of 3:-

if ab

c then

(b)inverse proportions rule of 3:-

if ab

c then

(i)direct method----

(ii)indirect or inverse proportions xy=k

given:-method used is called indirect or inverse proportions method

w1=5,w2=7,l1=36000,l2=63000,h1=8,h2=?

h2=6.4 hr
