#### Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, you must measure how much orange juice there is in a jug.

Here is a cup of juice.

Here is an empty measuring jug.

When we pour the juice from 1 cup into the jug, the level reaches the mark labelled 1.

The scale shows the number of cups of liquid in the jug.

Example 1

Read the scale to find out how many cups of orange juice are in the jug.

Answer

The juice reaches the 6 mark, so we will get 6 cups of orange juice.

Example 2

Read the scale to find out how many more cups of orange juice are needed to reach the 10 mark.

Answer

The juice reaches the 6 mark.

10 - 6 = 4.

We need 4 more cups to reach the 10 mark.
