2. A pool company is trying out several new drains. Drain A empties a pool at a rate of 2 gal/min. Drain B empties a pool at a rate of 5 gal/min. One pool has 108 gal of water in it. Write an equation for each drain that shows the amount of time it takes to empty the pool. Then solve each equation showing your work.

Drain A: rate is 2 gal/min. We do not know which pool has 108 gallons of water in it. If it's Pool A, then the time required to empty Pool A is

108 gallons

------------------- = 54 minutes

2 gallons/min

If it's Pool B, then we can represent the amount of water in Pool B by b. Then the time required to empty Pool B is

b (gallons)

------------------ = (b/5) minutes

5 gallons/min
