It would take the too pipes 30 minutes to fill the tank when working together.

This figure can be found in the following manner:

1. Find the fill-speed of the first pipe
1. 50 minutes to fill 6000 Liters. 6000L/50m gives us 120L/m (liters-per-minute)
1. 6000 Liters in 75 minutes = 6000L/75m = 80L/m
2. Next find the speed of the second pipe
3. Now we combine the two rates (120+80), and we find that the pipes have a combined fill-speed of 200L/m
4. Finally, we determine that it takes 30 minutes to fill the tank at 200L/m
