    Answer:

    The tank would hold 40 gallons of water when full.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The tank is already 3/4 full of water

    If Henry added 5 gallons, it will be 7/8 full.

    Therefore the fraction added by Henry =7/8-3/4=1/8

    It means that 1/8 of the total=5 gallons of water

    Let the total capacity of the tank=x

    \frac{1}{8}Xx=5 gallons\\ x=8X5=40 gallons

    The tank would hold 40 gallons of water when full.
