## Challenge:

200 percent of a half of \(\frac{1}{5}\) of a tank is full of gas. If 90 gallon of gas is added to the tank, half of it will be filled. What is the capacity of the tank?

**A-** 150 Gallon

**B-** 180 Gallon

**C-** 200 Gallon

**D-** 260 Gallon

**E-** 300 Gallon

The correct answer is E.

\(200\%\) of a half of \(\frac{1}{5}\) of a tank equals to \(\frac{1}{5}\) of the tank!

Half of \(\frac{1}{5}\) equals to \(\frac{1}{10}. 200\%\) of \(\frac{1}{10}\) equals to \(\frac{1}{5}\).

90 gallons of gas fills the difference of \(\frac{1}{5}\) and half (\(\frac{1}{2}\)) of the tank. Therefore:

\(\frac{1}{2} T- \frac{1}{5} T= 90 → \frac{3}{10} T = 90 → T = 300\)
