Let *Q*(*t*) lb. be the amount of salt in the tank, *V*(*t*) gal be the volume of water in the tank.

Find the amount of salt in the tank at any time prior to the instant when the solution begins to overflow. Your answer should be a function in terms of *t*.

Doesn't Q(T) = t +200?

Find the concentration (in pounds per gallon) of salt in the tank when it is on the point of overflowing. Round your answer to 3 decimal places.

Doesn't this just equal 200 +200 = 400?
