    Answer:

      250 minutes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    a) Assuming all taps flow at the same rate, the time is inversely proportional to the number of taps. Using 3/5 of the total taps will take 5/3 of the time required when all taps are used.

    For 3 taps, the time is …

      (5/3)(150 minutes) = 250 minutes

    __

    b) An assumption being made in my working is that all the taps are flowing at the same rate.
