 Imprecise measurements 2007-12-09 From Sara:Hi! A water tank, in the shape of a cuboid (length 1.6 m, height 1.2 m, breadth 0.8 m), is full of water. Water is drained from the tank at a rate of 8 litres per minute. The dimensions of the tank are given to the nearest 10 cm. The rate at which the water is drained from the tank is given to the nearest 0.5 litres per minute. (a) Calculate the smallest possible time to drain the tank. (b) Calculate the greatest possible time to drain the tank. Many thanks!!!Answered by Stephen La Rocque. Random 1998-09-15 From Hugh Ballantyne:I am an occasional teacher.
