    Series - I'm rubbish at series!

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post..

    Water fills a tank at a rate of 150 litres during the first hour, 350 litres during the second hour, 550 during the third hour and so on. Find the number of hours necessary to fill a rectangular tank 16m x 9m x 9m.

    Anythoughts would be much appreciated!!

    Thanks
