A glass of water is $\dfrac{3}{7}$ full and $\dfrac{4}{7}$ empty. It has 6 ounces of water in it. How many ounces of water can the glass hold?

If the glass holds  x  ounces of water and if it is  3/4s  full, then  (3/4)·x  =  6

Multiply both sides by 4:    3x  =  24.

Divide both sides by 3:        x  =  8.
