Problem of PIPES

Pipe A takes 16 min to fill a tank. Pipes B and C, whose cross-sectional circumferences are in the ratio 2:3, fill another tank twice as big as the first. If A has a cross-sectional circumference that is one-third of C, how long will it take for B and C to fill the second tank? (Assume the rate at which water flows through a unit cross-sectional area is same for all the three pipes.)

Vineet calculates his profit% on the selling price while Roshan calculates his profit on the cost price. They found that their difference in their profit is Rs 275 . If the selling price of both of them are same, and Vineet gets 25% profit and Roshan gets 15% profit then find their selling prices
