1. Answer:

48 liters

Step-by-step explanation:

First container = x

Second container has twice as much oil.

Second container = 2x

13 liters of oil was used from first container.

x – 13

7 liters of oil was used from the second container.

2x – 7

Second container has 3 times more oil than the first one.

2x – 7 = 3(x – 13)

x – 7 = 3(x – 13)

x – 7 = 3x – 39

2x = 32

x = 16

First container = 16 liters

second container = 16 x 2 = 32 liters

Total = 16 + 32 = 48 liters

2. Answer:60 liters

Step-by-step explanation: Container 1=-13 x3 = 39

Container 2= -7 x3 21

39+21=  60 liters
