    Volume of two tanks

    Having problems with this volume question.

    There were 68000cm3 of water in tank X and tank Y. The heights of the water in both tanks are equal. Tank Y was 40% full of water. When all the water from tank Y was poured into tank X, 4litres of water overflowed.

    A) find the height of the water in tank X at first?
    B) find the capacity of tank Y?

    Thanks in advance
