## Answers ( No )

So a well produced 172 gallons and each barrel can hold 42 so 172/42 =4.09 so it would fill 4 full barrels with a bit of excess

4.09barrels of oil will be produced per day.## Further Explanation

To determine the amount of barrels of oil the well will produce in a day, total amount of gallons produced per day (172) will be divided by total amount a standard oil barrel holds (42)

Therefore,

=

= 4.09

Hence, the well will produce 4.09 (or about 5) barrels of oil in one day.
