Exercise45

A water tank has $$163$$ gallons of water in it, and it is being drained at the rate of $$7$$ gallons per minute. After how many minutes will there be $$37$$ gallons of water left?

Assume the tank will have $$37$$ gallons of water after $$m$$ minutes. We can solve this problem using the equation:

\begin{equation*} 163-7 m=37 \end{equation*}

Check whether $$19$$ is a solution for $$m$$ of this equation.
