**PROBLEM 1-8-2**

The gauge of an oil tank indicated that the tank was 1/7 full. After 240 gallons of oil were added to the tank, the gauge indicated that the tank was 4/7 full. How many gallons of oil does the tank hold, assuming that the gauge is accurate?

**560 gallons**

Since 3/7 of the tank, or 240 gallons, was added, then 1/7 of a tank holds 80 gallons. The whole tank holds 7 times 80, or 560, gallons.
