Note......   1 + 1/3  = 4/3

 

So.....it leaks 1 gallon  every 4/3 months

 

And  m  varies directly with the number of gallons, g,  leaked....

 

So

 

m  =  kg       and we know that   m  = 4/3   and  g    = 1.......so we can  find k thusly :

 

(4/3)  = k (1)      implies that   k  = 4/3

 

So .....       m   =(4/3)g

 

So....we want to find out how long it will take to leak 7 galllons........

 

m  = (4/3) (7)      

 

m =  28/3      =     9  + 1/3 months

 

The second answer  is correct

 

 

cool cool cool
