Question

Hildy had 2.5 oz of liquid for a science experiment. The instructions said that the experiment needed 3 oz of liquid. She went to the cabinet and got an additional 7.5 oz of liquid. Did Hildy get a reasonable amount of liquid out of the cabinet?

A. Yes, Hildy got a reasonable amount of liquid because she needed a total of 7.5 oz (2.5 × 3 = 7.5).

B. No, Hildy did not get a reasonable amount of liquid because she only needed 0.5 oz (3 – 2.5 = 0.5).

C. No, Hildy did not get a reasonable amount of liquid because she only needed 5.5 oz (3 + 2.5 = 5.5).
