A bucket can hold 16 liters. After it rained, the bucket was one-fourth full. How many liters of rain were in the bucket?

We are told in the question that a bucket has a capacity of 16 liters. We are told that after it has rained, it is one-fourth or one-quarter full. In order to calculate the amount of rain in the bucket, we need to work out one-fourth of 16 liters. The word “of” in mathematics means multiply. So we need to multiply one-fourth by 16. Multiplying by a fourth or a quarter is the same as dividing by four. We know that 16 divided by four is equal to four. This means that one-fourth of 16 liters is four liters. After it rained, there were four liters of water in the bucket.
