When the fuel tanks of an airline are 3/8 full, they contain at least 6300 gallons. How much fuel can the airliner hold when the tanks are full?

Since 3/8 equals 6300, you need to see how many gallons equal 1/8. So divide 6300 by 3, which is 2100.

2100 equals 1/8. So you need to find how much 8/8 is. Multiply 2100 by 8 and that is your answer.
