Write an equation for the problem and solve.
There are 17 2/3 gallons of water in the tank. The tank is 3/4 full. How many gallons of water, G, can the tank hold?
My answer was G= 13 1/4. I did the inverse and got 17 2/3 gallons back that's correct.. But why is it that the tank holds less the the amount currently in it... Where did I go wrong.

3/4x=17 2/3

Mertsj, I am trying to figure out where did I go wrong finding G or in your case X

\[x=\frac{53}{3}\times\frac{4}{3}=\frac{212}{9}\]
