Answer:## tank 1 can hold three times the water tank 2 can hold

Step-by-step explanation:in this problem, we are expected to solve for the individual volumes of each tank

given tank 1

lenght= 30 inches

width=20 inches

height= 15 inches

volume= 30*20*12

volume= 7200 inch^3

given tank 2

lenght= 20 inches

width=12 inches

height= 10 inches

volume= 20*12*10

volume= 2400 inch^3

to get the amount of water tank 1 one can hold more than two, we need to divivde the volume of tank 1 by tank 2

= 7200/2400

=3

Therefore tank 1 can hold three times the water tank 2 can hold
