We’ll first need to convert millilitres into litres. Remember that there are 1000 millilitres in 1 litre. How many litres of hand sanitiser do we need to buy?
17200 divided by 1000 equals 17.2 litres.
Image of a large blue jug representing 1 US gallon on the left side of an equals sign. On the right sign are three litre bottles and one partial bottle, representing 3.785 litres.
If 1 US gallon equals 3.785 litres, how many gallon bottles will Mia need to purchase?
17.2 litres divided by 3.785 equals 5 gallon bottles.
Note: the exact quantity is 4.54 gallon bottles, but since Mia can’t order part of a bottle, the answer is rounded.
At $50 per bottle, what is the total cost of the order?
5 times $50 equals $250.
