Bucket volume 12 liters. 80% of the bucket volume was filled with water. How many liters of water are in the bucket?

It is known from the condition that the volume of the bucket is 12 liters. 80% of the bucket volume was filled with water. In order to find how many liters of water are in a bucket, let’s make up and solve the proportion.

Let’s take the volume of a bucket of 12 liters as 100%.

And using the variable x liters, we denote 80% of the bucket of water.

We compose and solve the proportion.

12 liters – 100%;

x liters – 80%;

12 / x = 100/80;

We need to find the unknown average term of the proportion.

x = (12 * 80) / 100 = 960/100 = 9.6 liters of water is in the bucket 80% full.
