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
