If it was 1/2 full, and is now 1/8 full, that means 3/8ths was removed. So 3/8ths of a tank = 420 gallons.

Divide by 3, and you get 1/8th = 140 gallons.

Multiply by 8, and you get 1120 gallons total capacity of the tank.

Wow! I just happened to be browsing for a different purpose, and I read this question, then looked at the answer.

The way you wrote the answer out somehow opened a memory
"block" of mine and I was able to fully understand it! When I couldn't have done it before! I'm talking a matter of years. I'm now 51 years old and I couldn't have done this TWENTY years ago. Or, maybe I had it all along and somehow you just smacked me on the right side of the head to knock out my cobwebs. (Right, as in correct, not as in opposite of left, lol).

This may not sound like much to some of you, but for me, struggling with memory problems and physicall illness, etc. this was a pretty major breakthrough for me. I just wanted to thank you!

Do you want combinations or permutations? They're different things. A combination of n items taken m at a time, sometimes written "nCm", selects m items from a group of n without regard to order. A permutation of n items taken m at a time, sometimes written "nPm", selects m items from a group of m with regard to order.

Given six numbers, there are six combinations of one number, 15 combinations of two numbers, 20 combinations of three numbers, 15 combinations of four numbers, six combinations of five numbers, and one combination of six numbers.

Given six numbers, there are six permutations of one number, 30 permutations of two numbers, 120 permutations of three numbers, 360 permutations of four numbers, 720 permutations of five numbers, and 720 permutations of six numbers.

180/900 in the lowest terms


180/900 is 1/5 in the lowest terms.

Divide both 180 and 900 by 180. 180 divided by 180 is 1, 900 divided by 180 is 5. This gives 1/5.

I am horrible at maths need help asap


With algebra you are learning problem solving-that is the process of problem solving using rules and equations. The best way to learn it is to shut out all distraction and work at it. If there is something you don't understand you may have to go back to the beginning and learn all the principals and rules that you don't understand- Algebra can be a very hard subject but it can be concord with persistence.
