Mr. Landy has a red bucket, a yellow bucket and a green bucket. The red bucket holds twice as much as the green bucket. The yellow bucket holds 8 quarts. If the three buckets hold 14 gallons in all, how many gallons does the red bucket hold?

  1. R/2 = G

    G + R + 8 quarts = R/2 + R + 2 gallons = 14 gallons

    Solve for R.
