Answer:

#41# barrels can be completely filled.
#2/3# of a gallon remain.

Explanation:

#1250# gallons total
#30# gallon barrels

To find the number of barrels that can be completely filled, divide #1250# by #30#.

#1250/30# = #41.66666667#

You have #41# barrels you can completely fill, but you have #2/3# of a gallon remaining.
