1/2 of a gallon fills 2/3 of a bucket write an equation to find the amount that will fill the entire bin
We can solve this with a proportion
(1/2) / (2/3) = x / 1 where x is the gallons to fill the whole bucket
(1/2)(3/2) = x
(3/4) = x
Another (similar) answer:
1/2 gal = 2/3 x Where 'x' = bucket volume now solve for 'x'
1/2 gal x 3/2 = x = 3/4 gal
