Buckets 2811

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

Correct answer:

V =  150 l

Step-by-step explanation:


0.57·V + 2·12 = 0.73·V

0.16V = 24


V = 24/0.16 = 150

V = 150
