My bath has two taps and a plug hole. The cold tap on its own fills the bath in 12 minutes, the hot one in 8 minutes. The plug hole can drain the bath in 24 minutes with the taps off. How long will the bath take to fill if I leave both taps on with the plug left out?

Hint: Try seeing how many baths can be filled in 24 hours.
