well if 7 gallons empties 1/4 of the container. That means that it takes 4 buckets of 7 gallons each to fill the container. How many gallons total does that equal?

as you can see from the picutres, each time you take 7 gallons out, its 1/4 more empty right? So the reverse logic holds true. Each time you would add 7 gallons, it would add 1/4 of the container. You need 4/4 to make a whole so you would add 7 gallons, 4 times to equal 4/4 full. in other words: 4*7gallons= 28 gallons hope this helps!
