Exercise11

A truck that hauls water is capable of carrying a maximum of \(2900\) lb. Water weighs \(8.3454 \frac{\text{lb}}{\text{gal}}\text{,}\) and the plastic tank on the truck that holds water weighs \(86\) lb. What’s the maximum number of gallons of water the truck can carry?

Assume the truck can carry a maximum of \(g\) gallons of water. Write an equation to model this scenario. There is no need to solve it.
