When a gasoline container is 40% empty, it contains 35 liters more gasoline than when it is 40% full. What is the capacity of the gasoline container in liters?

Let the capacity of the container = C

When 40% empty = 60% full

60%C - 40%C =20%C

20%C = 35 liters

Divide both sides by 20%

C =35 liters / 20%

C = 175 liters - capacity of the container.
