Ebonae's fish tank holds 40 gallons. How many quarts does the fish tank hold?

1 Answer

Answer:

Ebonae's fish tank holds #160# quarts.

Explanation:

You can solve this by logic.

Each gallon is equal to #4# quarts.

#1# gallon = #4# quarts

therefore
#40# gallons = #4(40)# quarts

#40# gallons = #160# quarts #larr# answer

You can also solve this as a Dimensional Analysis problem

# (4 quarts)/cancel(gallon) xx 40 cancel(gallons) = 4 xx 40 quarts =160 quarts# #larr# same answer

A #40# gallon aquarium is often called a "breeder aquarium."

Here's a video of a #40#-gallon aquarium

It's #36# inches wide by #18# inches high by #16# inches deep.
