    Answer:

    The integer that representes the draining of 15 gallons of water from a fish tank is \Delta V = V_{f} - V_{o} = -15\,gal

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The gallon is a capacity (volume) units. The draining means that a part of the tank capacity occupied by water is removed. Then, the change in tank capacity is equal to a negative integer. That is:

    \Delta V = V_{f} - V_{o} = -15\,gal

    Where:

    V_{o}, V_{f} – Initial and final capacities in the fish tank, measured in gallons.

    Hence, the integer that representes the draining of 15 gallons of water from a fish tank is \Delta V = V_{f} - V_{o} = -15\,gal
