Debra : Ounces and quarts problem
A restaurant serves 8 fluid ounces of soup to each customer. How many quarts of soup should be prepared in order to serve 185 customers?
If 1 customer need 8 fluid ounces, 185 customers will need 8 * 185 ounces.
8 * 185 = 1480
185 customers will need 1480 ounces.
Now just convert 1480 ounces to quart.
1 quart = 32 ounces
Just divide 1480 by 32 ounces to get the number of quarts
1480 / 32 = 46.25
185 customers will need 46.25 quarts
