1. amount in the pail --- x ml
amount in the tank ---- 8346 - x ml

(8346-x) + 314 = 12(x-314)
8660 - x = 12x - 3768
12428 = 13x
x = 956

state conclusion with proper units.

3. Naomi, Macy, and Sebastian have 234 stamps in all. Naomi gives 16 stamps to Macy and 24 stamps to Sebastian. Naomi then has 3 times as many stamps as Macy, and Macy has twice as many stamps as Sebastian. How many stamps does Naomi have at first?

4. 8346/13=642(the number of water in the pail after giving 314 ml)
so we have to add 314 so 314+642=956(amount at first)
8346/13 because there was a total of 13 blocks in 8346ml
no need algebra or something just unitary method!
