    Amount of gas that can be hold by Joe's tank = 16 gallons.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that Joe's gas tank is 1/4 full. After he buys 6 gallons of gas, it is 5/8 full. Now we need to find about how many gallons can Joe's tank hold.

    So let's find change that happened after filling the gas.

    Change = (5/8 full) - (1/4 full)

    Change = (5/8 - 1/4) full

    Change = (5/8 - 2/8) full

    Change = (5 - 2) / 8 full

    Change = 3/8 full

    So that means 3/8 full happens in 6 gallons

    then 1 full will happen in 6 / (3/8) gallons = 6 * (8/3) gallons = 48/3 gallons = 16 gallons

    So the amount of gas that can be hold by Joe's tank = 16 gallons.
