Pure water flows into tank A at the rate of 3 gal/min. Brine flows from tank A to tank B at a rate of 4 gal/min. Brine flows from tank B to tank A at a rate of 1 gal/min. Brine leaves the system from tank B at a rate of 5 gal/min. Let x1(t) and x2(t) denote the amounts of salt in tanks A and B, respectively, at any time t. Set up a system of equations and initial vector to model this system.
