The container that holds the water for the football team is 3/10 full. After pouring in 5 gallons of water, it is 1/2 full. How many gallons can the container hold?

Initially container 3/10 full. Later 1/2 full.

So 1/2 - 3/10 = 5-3/10 =2/10 = 1/5 container content increased after 5 gallons added

Therefore 1/5 th container = 5 gallons

Whole container = 5 x 5 gallons

                          = 25 gallons

Answer: Container can hold 25 gallons.
