**Question. Every day an adult should consume 64 fluid ounces. Josey had already consumed 700 milliliters of water. How may more liters should he drink today?**

**Given:** Every day an adult should consume 64 fluid ounces.

Josey has already consumed 700 milliliters of water

**To Find:** How many more liters should he drink today?

We know that 1 fluid ounce is near to about29.6ml

Now converting 64 fluid ounces to milliliters,

64×29.6=1894.4ml

Josey consumes 700ml,

The difference is about 1894.4−700=1194.4ml

To Converting into liters divide ml by1000,

1194.4/1000

=1.1944l

An adult drinks 64 fluid ounces of water every day. Josey has already consumed 700 milliliters of water. 1.1944 liters he should drink today.
