3-47.

Maurice's gas tank can hold 60 liters of gas. On your paper, copy and label the percent ruler below. Then use it to find how many liters are in the tank when it is: Homework Help ✎

1. 50% full

1. $\frac { 7 } { 10 }$ full

1. $\frac{2}{5}$ full

50% is equal to one half. What is one half of 60 liters?

30 L

If you divide 60 liters into 10 parts, there will be 6 liters each. How many liters would there be if you had 7 of these groups?

This problem is similar to part (b). When you divide 60 liters into 5 parts, each part has 12 liters.
