A glass pitcher is filled with water. 1/8 of the water is poured equally into 2 glasses.If 1/4 of the remaining water is poured out of the pitcher to water a plant, how many cups of water are left in the pitcher?

Need to know how many  cups  the full pitcher holds, Alston, to give a definitive answer

 

However....let's suppose that  the full pitcher holds  N cups

 

Ater 1/8N  is  poured out  .....there remains   (7/8)N  cups

 

The  amt poured out to water the plant

 

So  (1/4) (7/8)N   =  7/32N    

 

So....the amt  that remains   =   (7/8  - 7/32)N  =  ( 28/32  - 7/32)N  =  (21/32)N

 

cool cool cool
