# Barrel

The barrel is filled with water up to 57% of its capacity. When we add two buckets will be filled to 73% of its capacity. What is the volume of a barrel, if the volume of the bucket is 12 liters?

V =  150 l

### Step-by-step explanation:

x = 0.57•V
x + 2•12 = 0.73•V

0.57V-x = 0
0.73V-x = 24

V = 150
x = 171/2 = 85.5
