- pressure = rho x g x h

Not sure how to start off this question

I'm confused how to begin if I do not the exact pressure on either pipe A or pipe B

Only thing that I can deduce from this is that if pipe A exerts a smaller pressure than before then the mercury column on the left side would rise i.e. the new manometer reading would have to be less than 0.3m. I can't figure out how to get this new reading however which would be less than 0.3m

Thanks for any help given!
