Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So this is going to be a proportionality of how much water the tank can hold at what point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So if we let c represent the capacity of the tank, then lets see what 0.8 portion of the tank would be like.. dw:1440402765782:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Then it says 25 L of the 4/5ths capacity is taken out, this can be represented as: \[0.8c  25\] Then it says that 14 L of `excess` water water `remains` over `half` the tank's capacity. that can be represented as : \[0.5c + 14\] we can equate these two to find the capacity \(c\) of the tank. \[0.8c  25 = 0.5c + 14\] Now just solve for \(c\) andyou'llfind your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be 0.4c+ 14 ,because it is saying water is half filled ,..i am confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3when you think of half, you think of 0.5 or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3we have to set them equal to eachother because one, we given how much water is taken OUT at a certain capacity, and two, you are told how much excess water remains when the tank is at half capacity after the 25 L are taken out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so you set them equal to eachother to find the general capacity of the tank
