    Answer:

    120 gallons per hour.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Between 1:30 P.M. and 1:50 P.M., 40 gallons of water leaked into a boat.

    We know, the (1: 50 P.M. – 1: 30 P.M.) = 20 minutes.

    So, the time span is of 20 minutes and the amount of water leaked into is 40 gallons.

    Therefore, the amount of water that will leak into the boat in 60 minutes is \frac{40 \times 60}{20} = 120 gallons.

    So, the rate in gallons per hour of the leaking water is 120 gallons per hour. (Answer)
