Question

Greg’s gas tank is 1/3 full after he buys 2 gallons of gas it is 1/2 full how many gallons can Greg’s tank hold

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    12 gallons

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let x be the amount tank can hold, then

    [tex]\frac{1}{3}[/tex] x + 2 = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] x

    Multiply through by 6

    2x + 12 = 3x ( subtract 2x from both sides )

    12 = x

    The tank can hold 12 gallons
