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?

Remember in step (2) that 3/6 is another way of saying 1/2. 

 

(1)  The tank starts out 1/6 full. 

 

(2)  Then 2 gallons makes it 3/6 full. 

 

(3)  So, 2 gallons added 2/6 of a tank.  

 

(4)  A full tank is 6/6 so the tank holds 6 gallons.
