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 !)
