Margret has some goats.The goats produce an average daily total of 21.7 litres of milk for 280 days.Margret sells the milk in 0.5 litre bottles.Work out an estimate for the total number of bottles that Margret will be able to fill with the milk.

The goats produce milk at a rate of 21.7 litres per day.

21.7 liters per day * 280 days = 6,076 liters total

And... 6,076 liters / 0.5 liters per bottle = 12,152 bottles

This makes sense, because if each bottle holds 1 liter, and she has a total of 6,076 liters, then it will take 6,076 bottles. But since each bottle holds half a liter, it will take two times as many bottles.
