###### Exercise34

A water tank has $$297$$ gallons of water in it, and it is being drained at the rate of $$19$$ gallons per minute. After how many minutes will there be $$31$$ gallons of water left?

Assume the tank will have $$31$$ gallons of water after $$m$$ minutes. We can solve this problem using the equation:

$$\displaystyle{297-19 m=31}\text{.}$$

Check whether $$14$$ is a solution for $$m$$ of this equation.
