Two large containers each contain the same amount of juice. When 54oz. of the first container are poured into the second container, the second container has 4 times as much juice as the first container. How many ounces of juice did the first container originally have?

  • math problem - ,

    at start:
    container A has x oz
    container B has x oz

    after pouring:
    container A has x-54
    container B has x+54

    x+54 = 4(x-54)
    x+54 = 4x - 216
    -3x = -270
    x = 90

    check:
    90-54 = 36
    90+54 = 144

    IS 144 equal to 4 times 36 ? YEAh
