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?

6 gallons

Let's assign a variable for the total capacity: t

1/2t - 1/6t = 1/3t

1/3t = 2

2 * 3 = 6

So the total capacity of the tank is 6 gallons
