# A water tank contains 1,250 gallons of water. The water is used to fill some 30-gallon barrels. What is the number of barrels that can be completely filled and how much water is left?

$41$ barrels can be completely filled.
$\frac{2}{3}$ 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 $30$.

$\frac{1250}{30}$ = $41.66666667$

You have $41$ barrels you can completely fill, but you have $\frac{2}{3}$ of a gallon remaining.
