If One-third of a tank holds 80 litres of water.
Then, half of the tank can hold 120 litres of water which can be figure out as follows.
Let suppose the total capacity of a tank is “y” and given equation shows y/3 = 80 litres of water.
Here we can easily find out the value of y (y = 80 x 3 = 240 litres).
And half of tank can hold; 240/2 = 120 litres of water.
Quantity of water that half of the tank hold = ?
We are given two quantities here i.e. tank capacity and quantity of water.
Tank Capacity Quantity of Water
1/3 80 litres
1/2 y (say)
1/3 is smaller than 1/2 which means capacity of tank is increasing and of course more water can be stored so there is a direct relation.
1/3 : 1/2 = 80 : y
2/3 = 80/y
2y = 80 x 3
y = 240/2
y = 120 litres answer
If one-third of a tank holds 80 litres of water, then the quantity of water that half of the tank hold would be 120 litres.
