While your partner is away, you take delivery of a full barrel of wine on their behalf. You drink 5 glasses of wine the first night. Fearing your partner might get angry, you top the barrel up with water. The following night you are thirsty and you drink six glasses of the diluted wine. You observe that you are equally tipsy on both nights. How many glasses of wine does the barrel hold?
