When the fuel tanks of an airline are 3/8 full, they contain at least 6300 gallons. How much fuel can the airliner hold when the tanks are full?

Since 3/8 equals 6300, you need to see how many gallons equal 1/8. So divide 6300 by 3, which is 2100.

2100 equals 1/8. So you need to find how much 8/8 is. Multiply 2100 by 8 and that is your answer.

## To find the answer, follow these steps:

Step 1: Start with the given information that when the fuel tanks are 3/8 full, they contain at least 6300 gallons.

Step 2: Determine how many gallons are equivalent to 1/8 of the tank's capacity. Divide 6300 by 3 to find this value: 6300 / 3 = 2100 gallons (equivalent to 1/8 of the tank).

Step 3: Recognizing that the airline wants to know how much fuel the airliner can hold when the tanks are full, you need to determine how many gallons are in the remaining 7/8 of the tank.

Step 4: Multiply 2100 (gallons equivalent to 1/8 of the tank) by 8 (to find the total capacity of the tank, which is 8/8): 2100 x 8 = 16,800 gallons.

Therefore, when the fuel tanks are full, the airliner can hold 16,800 gallons of fuel.
