##### Solution Summary

The solution gives all mathematical steps. The flow rates of rectangular open tanks are determined.

##### Solution Preview

Volume = length * height * breadth

But here the units are in inches so we have to convert them to a standard unit first.

we know that 1 inch = 0.0254 meters

So the dimensions of the tank are,

4.5*0.0254 = 0.1143 m wide

3 * 0.0254 = 0.0762 m deep

6 * 0.0254 = 0.1524 m long

===> the volume ...
