This question has been taken from Book:- ML aggarwal, Avichal publication, class10th, quadratic equation in one variable, chapter 5, exercise 5.5

This is an important ques

Two pipes running together can fill a tank in 11 1/9 minutes. If one pipe takes 5 minutes more than the other to fill the tank, find the time in which each pipe would/fill the tank.

Question no33. , ML Aggarwal, chapter 5, exercise 5.5, quadratic equation in one variable, ICSE board,

Solution:Let the time taken by one pipe = x minutes

Then time taken by second pipe = (x + 5) minutes

Time taken by both pipes = 11 1/9 =100/9 minutes

Now according to the condition.
