An aquarium tank is 1/6 full of water.  When 2 gallons of water are added, the tank becomes 1/3 full.  What is the total capacity of the aquarium tank, in gallons?

We have the equation: $${1 \over 6}x + 2 = {1 \over 3}x$$

Subtracting $${1 \over 6}x$$ from both sides, we get: $$2 = {1\over 6}x$$

Now, we have to multiply the entire equation by 6 to get our answer.

Can you take it from here?
