The first hose fills at a rate of 1500 liters per hour if it runs for x hours, then it will fill up 1500x liters total

If the second hose runs for x hours as well, how many liters will the second hose fill up?

no I'm not saying they are even since one fills up faster but the second one does fill up 2000x liters in x hours

  • jim_thompson5910
if you combine the two, they will give you a total of 1500x+2000x = 3500x
