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

To find: The value of breadth, say b.

Formula to find the volume of a tank = l×b×h = (2.5× b×10) m

^{3}= 25b m^{3}Capacity of tank= 25b m

^{3}, which is equal to 25000b litresAlso, capacity of a cuboidal tank is 50000 litres of water (Given)

Therefore, 25000 b = 50000

This implies, b = 2

Therefore, the breadth of the tank is 2 m.
