Hello physics forum, can someone please explain to me the thought process that one uses to solve a question like this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A leak has been discovered in a water supply pipe that will take several days to repair. Suppose that it is leaking at a rate given by the function 4 + 0.2t, that is

dV/dt = 4 + 0:2t

where V is the number of litres of water wasted after t hours. How much water will be wasted as a function of t if after 10 hours there has been 100 litres lost?

Cheers
