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

Mar 7, 2018

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 = $4 \left(40\right)$ quarts

$40$ gallons = $160$ quarts $\leftarrow$ 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 $\leftarrow$ 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.
