| 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.

Answer: 9.6 liters.
