    Your petrol tank holds 60 litres. It is three quarters full. How many litres have you used?

    Maths isn't my best subject, so any help would be appreciated

    Don't worry I will help.

    In these types of questions what you do is find three quarters of 60. So 3/4 × 60 which is 45. Therefore, you have used 45 litres out of the 60.

    I hope you understand it better now.

    Well that's wrong.

    The tank holds 60 litres. If it is three quarters full you have 45 litres left in it. So you have used 15 litres.

    Oh I'm really sorry I understood the question now, I thought that 3/4 has been used and wanted the answers in litres. SORRY AGAIN
