Find the Volume (in litres) of Water Contained by Each Bucket :

If 64 buckets of water are removed from a cubical shaped water tank completely filled with water, 1/3 of the tank remains filled with water. The length of each side of the tank is 1.2 m, Assuming that all buckets are of the same measure, then the volume (in litres) of water contained by each bucket is

    Answer is (4): 18

    Explanation:-
    The side of a tank = 1.2 m
    Then, the volume of a tank = (1.2)3
     = 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.2
     = 1.728 m3

    Water tank filled with water = 1-1/3 => (3 – 1)/3
      = 2/3
    The volume of 64 buckets water = 2 x 1.728/3
     = 1.152 m3
    1m3 = 1000 litres
    Therefore, 0.576 m3 = 1.152 x 1000
     = 1152 litres

    Then, the water contained by buckets = 1152 litres
    Therefore, water contained by each bucket = 1152/64
     = 18 litres

    Then, the volume of (in litres) of water contained by each bucket is 18 litres.

    Hence, the answer is (4) 18 litres.
