Jerry has a six-pack of 500 mL Snapple bottles. He takes three of the bottles, dumps their contents into a large jug, and drinks 75% of the Snapple in the jug. How many liters of Snapple does Jerry have now? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest thousandth.
He has three WHOLE bottles left 500 x 3 =1500 ml PLUS 25% of this amount left in the jug...
500 x 3 + .25 (500 x 3) = 1875 ml = 1.875 liters
(and .75 x 1500 = 1.125 l in his stomach !)
