Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's a proportion. It takes 1/5 gallons of water fills 2/3 of the bin. That ratio will be the same no matter how much water is actually in the bin. So to find out how much water is in a full bin, you put 1 where the 2/3 is and x is the unknown amount of water, and you set it equal to the known ratio.
