Dimensions of face B = 3' * 4'
Dimensions of face C = 4' * 5'

The common side /edge between the two faces = 4'
Hence volume of the tank is = 3' * 4 ' * 5' = 60 cubic feet

Dimensions of face A of the tank = 3' * 5' = 15 sq ft

Height of full tank with face A as the base = 60/15 = 4 feet

Water level = 4'/2= 2 feet

Given :-
Dimensions of face B = 3ft x 4ft
Dimensions of face C = 4ft x 5ftft

Common side between the two faces = 4ft

So volume of the tank is = 3ft × 4ft × 5ft = 60 cubic feet

Dimensions of face A of the tank = 3ft × 5ft = 15 sq ft

Height of tank with face A( as the base ) = 60/15 = 4ft

Water level = 4ft/2= 2ft.
