Liam and evan are mixing paint. Liam uses 2 quarts of yellow paint and adds 3 1/4 jars of blue paint. Evan uses 1/2 quart of yellow paint and adds 5 1/2 jars of red paint. They end up with the same volume of paint. Write an equation to represent the situation.
In this question, we don't know how many quarts are there in each jar of Liam and Evan. So, we will assume Liam's jar has quarts and Evan's jar has quarts.
Now, total quarts of Liam will be
And, total quarts of Evan will be
We know that the final volume of both paints is equal. So, we get
