This is what the problem tells us: It takes 16 of the small container to fill the large container. 16 small = 1 large Three small containers leave 1.95 gallons of space in the large container. 3 small + 1.95 gal = 1 large Do you understand it so far?

The first statement is very simple. 16 small containers = 1 large container. I don't think you have any questions on it, right?

The second statement is that if you pour 3 small containers into the large one, you are still short, by 1.95 gal, of filing the large container That means 3 small containers + 1.95 gallons = the large container

Once again we have: 16 small = 1 large 3 small + 1.95 gal = 1 large But 16 small = 3 small + 13 small, so we substitute: 3 small + 13 small = 1 large 3 small + 1.95 gal = 1 large Now when we compare the last two equations above, we see that 13 small containers = 1.95 gal. small container = (1.95 gal)/13 = 0.15 gal The small container measure 0.15 gal. The large container is 16 times larger, so large container = 16 * 0.15 gal = 2.4 gal Answer: small container 0.15 gal; large container 2.4 gal
