container A has twice the capacity of container B. Container A is full of sand and container B is empty. Suppose 1/8 of the sand in container A is poured into Container B. What fractional part of container B will contain sand?

  • math -

    1/8

    actully, 1/8 of A's capacity has gone into B

    But, B has half the capacity of A, so 2/8 = 1/4 of B will be filled with sand.
