An aqarium 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?

Call 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 (4/1)  = C   =     8  gallons
