Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as 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!
