Liquid Flow Analysis - Multiple Inlets (Volume Flow Rate)

I'm running a liquid thermal analysis with 3 inlets and 3 outlets. All 3 inlets merge to form one flow path, with a desired flow rate of 1.5 GPM.

 

My question is: If I select all three inlet faces and set a flow rate of 1.5 GPM, will each individual inlet have 1.5 GPM, or would they be split up evenly, so each inlet has a flow rate of .5 GPM?

 

I know when applying heat sources, you can select multiple surfaces and the heat load is dispersed evenly amongst all surfaces. Does it work the same with inlets and flow rates?
