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

Hello Guest!

 

\(\frac{x}{2}+2\ gallons=x\\ \color{blue}x=4\ gallons\)

The total capacity of the aquarium tank is 4 gallons.

F==Full tank

 

1/2F  -  1/6F ==1/3F

 

1/3F ==2

 

F ==2 x 3 ==6 gallons - full capacity of the tank.
