The punch bowl at Felicia's party is getting low, so she adds 12 cups of punch to the bowl. Two guests serve themselves 1.25 cups and 2 cups of punch. The punch bowl now contains 11.5 cups of punch. How many cups were in the punch bowl before Felicia refilled it? Let n = number of cups in bowl before Felicia refilled it.

A full  bowl  must contain  11.5 + 1.25 + 2  = 14.75  cups

 

So

 

14.75   -  12 =   n

 

2.75  cups  =  n

1.25+2+11.5=14.75

 

14.75-12=2.75
