Two pipes $P$ and $Q$ can fill a tank in $6$ hours and $9$ hours respectively, while a third pipe $R$ can empty the tank in $12$ hours. Initially, $P$ and $R$ are open for $4$ hours, Then $P$ is closed and $Q$ is opened. After $6$ more hours $R$ is closed. The total time taken to fill the tank (in hours) is ____ $13.50$ $14.50$ $15.50$ $16.50$
