An aquarium tank is 1/6 full of water. When 2 gallons of water are added, the tank becomes 5/12 full. What is the total capacity of the aquarium tank, in gallons?

Let the capacity = C

 

So

 

(1/6) C  + 2  = (5/12) C

 

2 =  (5/12) C  - (1/6)C

 

2 =  (5/12) C = (2/12) C

 

2 =  (3/12) C

 

2 = (1/4) C

 

2 / (1/4)  = C

 

8 =  C
