# Find amount of water wasted after filling the tank

• Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2022

Given the volume V of a tank in liter. There is a pump which is filling the tank at speed of M liter per minute. There is a leakage at the bottom of the tank which wasting water at speed N liter per minute. Given N is less than M. The task is to calculate how much amount of water will be wasted if leakage is seen after filling the full tank.
Examples:

```Input : V = 700, M = 10, N = 3
Output : 300

Input : V = 1000, M = 100, N = 50
Output : 1000```

Approach : Given the speed of filling pump is M liter per minute. So, the amount of water filled in one minute is M Liter. Also, N litres of water is wasted in a minute. Therefore after one minute the amount of water in the tank will be (M – N). Hence total time taken to fill the tank with leakage will be V / (M-N).
Therefore the amount of wasted water will be (V / (M-N)) * N.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ program to find the volume of water wasted` `#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to calculate amount of wasted water``double` `wastedWater(``double` `V, ``double` `M, ``double` `N)``{``    ``double` `wasted_amt, amt_per_min, time_to_fill;` `    ``// filled amount of water in one minute``    ``amt_per_min = M - N;` `    ``// total time taken to fill the tank``    ``// because of leakage``    ``time_to_fill = V / amt_per_min;` `    ``// wasted amount of water``    ``wasted_amt = N * time_to_fill;` `    ``return` `wasted_amt;``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``double` `V, M, N;``    ``V = 700;``    ``M = 10;``    ``N = 3;``    ``cout << wastedWater(V, M, N) << endl;` `    ``V = 1000;``    ``M = 100;``    ``N = 50;``    ``cout << wastedWater(V, M, N) << endl;` `    ``return` `0;``}`
