Ques:- Two pipes X and Y can separately fill a cistern in 18 and 24 hours respectively. If they are turned on alternately for one hour each, how long will it take to fill the cistern?

X filling rate is 1/18 or 4/72 per hour

Y filling rate is 1/24 or 3/72 per hour

Combined as a pair it’s 7/72 in a complete 2 hour alternating sequence

72+ 7/72 =10 sequences = 70/72 on 20 hours, The outstanding balance is just 2/72

So at 20.5 hours with X turn filling is 100% complete with 72/72

Answer: It will take 20.5 hours to completely fill this tank.

Analysis of measured filling process, from X = 42/72 share & from Y = 30/72 share
