Gear flow divider pressure

One product I’m working on has a gear type flow divider. This is a unit with mechanically linked four¬†gear motors:

Today was asked the question: what happen if some of the lines be broken or leaking:

Somebody who is not familiar good enough with hydraulics can be confusing to know that the pressure at the actuator can be increased in this case. Moreover, the in this case the flow divider will work as a pressure multiplication device.

Why?

The answer we can get if research this device from the point of power transfer.
