A water tank is in the shape of an inverted cone with depth 10 meters and top radius 8 meters. Water is flowing into the tank at 0.1 cubic meters/min but leaking out at a rate of 0.001h(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}cubic meters/min, where h is the depth of the water in the tank in meters. Can the tank ever overflow?

Can anyone help with this? The flowing in and leaking out is a bit confusing.
