Expert Answer:

Given, area of the base of the tank = 169 m2

Let height of the tank = h m

Volume of the rectangular tank = Area of the base × height = 169 × h m3 = 169 h m3 

A rectangular tank can hold 253500 litres of water = Syntax error from line 1 column 411 to line 1 column 416. Unexpected '<sup>'.

Thus we have

169 h = 253.5

rightwards double arrow h equals fraction numerator 253.5 over denominator 169 end fraction equals space 1.5 space m

Thus height of the tank is 1.5 m.
