Barrel 3

Barrel with water weights 118 kg. When we get off 75% of water, it weights 35 kg. How many kg has an empty barrel?

Correct answer:

x =  7.33 kg

Step-by-step explanation:


x+y=118
x+(1-75/100)y=35

x+y=118
x+(1-75/100)•y=35

x+y = 118
100x+25y = 3500

x = 22/3 ≈ 7.333333
y = 332/3 ≈ 110.666667
