  1. Answer:

    Let height of water level in each tank be x cm.

    Tank A is completely filled,

    Now, some water is poured from tank A to tank B

    ∴ Volume of remaining water in tank A = 15×15×x cubic.cm

    Now, volume of water in tank B = 25×11×x cubic.cm

    Volume of tank A = Volume of remaining water in tank A + volume of water in tank B

    15×15×20 =(15×15×x)+(25×11×x)

    ∴ 4500=225x+275x

    ∴ 500x=4500

    ∴ x=9 cm

    ∴ Height of water level in each tank is 9 cm.
