1. Let’s find the volume of the remaining water, if it was 500 liters, but 350 liters were used:

500 – 350 = 150 (l)

2. The ratio of two quantities can be written by the sign of the division operation. Let’s write down the ratio of the volumes of used and remaining water and calculate it:

350: 150 = 3
