    approach a:1^1,2^2,3^3,4^4,5^5?

    Therefore 8+11=19


    3.two watches r set together one was faster by 1min per hr.other was slower by 2min per hr.after sometime the two watches had 1 hr difference .after how many hrs they showed one hr diff?

    Ans)20 hrs

    Ans)yes. I think the ans is 30 min. done by pipe A in unit time=1/6

    Work done by pipe B in unit time=7+1/2=2/15

    Pipe C (draining pipe)=1/8

    So the whole tank will b filled in=1/6+2/15-1/8
