hi AlbertMThomas

If water is poured into the container at a rate of 2t + 2 m per minute where t is the time.

Think about what that rate represents:

It's in cubic metres per minute so that's



At the start t = 0 and V = 0.  At the end V = 15 at (say) t = T

So integrate to get V in terms of t; put V = 15 (the constant of integration will come from t = V = 0) and solve for T

The volume of an empty container is 15 m. If water is poured into the container at a rate of 2t + 2 m per minute where t is the time. What is the time needed to fill the container?

PLEASE PROVIDE STEPS!!
