[tex]\frac {d}{dt} \frac {S^2 + W^2}{S+W} = \dot S[/tex]

where W(t) is the amount of water in the tank and S is the amount of salt given by [itex]S = S_0 + \dot S \times t[/itex] with [itex]\dot S[/itex] being the constant rate at which salt is added.

Are you sure about that tide? I could swear I tried that same thing, but I don't know, maybe I was just being an idiot. Thanks for the help
