# A large container holds 5 gallons of water. It begins leaking at a constant rate After 15 minutes, the container has 2 gallons of water left. How many minutes will it take for the container to go from full to empty?

In 15 minutes, the container has lost 3 gallons of water ($5 - 2 = 3$).
So for the container to lose the full 5 gallons will take 25 minutes ($5 \times 5 = 25$)
