Total = Airplane weight + fuel + pax + cargo
MTOW = maximum take off weight
MLW = maximum landing weight

Left fuel tank = in the left wing
Right fuel tank = in the right wing
Tail tank ='in the tail, the trim horizontal stabilizer.

In this example your take off weight is higher then the max landing weight.

The A380 has 11 fuel takes i think. And all the fuel is in the tanks closer to the wongs to increase life i think

Actually after take off fuel get transferred to the outer tanks to reduce wingbending. Around 8000 kg they can handle :)
