# A bottle filled with water weighs 9.6 kg. If the water by itself weighs 5 times as much as the bottle, what is the weight of the bottle?

$\text{1.6 kg}$

#### Explanation:

Let the weight of bottle be $x$. Therefore, the weight of the water $= 5 x$

Given:

$x + 5 x = 9.6$

So

$6 x = 9.6$

$x = \frac{9.6}{6} = 1.6$
