Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that there are 1000 ml in 1 litre.

For mixed quantities, you should convert to litres or to millilitres.

 

Example

How many 150 ml glasses can be filled from a 1 litre bottle?

 

 

 

 

 

Answer

We convert 1 litre to ml so that we are working entirely in ml.

 

We need to work out 1000 ÷ 150.

This is equal to 100 ÷ 15 = 20 ÷ 3 = 6 r 2

 

So 6 glasses can be filled.

 

6 x 150 = 900, so 100 ml will remain in the bottle.

How many 250 ml glasses can be filled from a 1 litre bottle?
