Question about Calculators
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!
