Suppose you have a 100 mL cup, a 300 mL cup, and a 500 mL cup. List two different ways you can measure exactly 1 L.

My answer. You can't do it. There is not enough to measure out for one liter. Right? What I have found on the net is that 1000 mL = 1 L.

You could use the 500 ml container 2x or you could use the 500ml once, the 300ml once and the 100ml twice. It doesn't say you can only use the containers once.

The 500 filled twice or the 300 filled three times plus the 100. Really?

You can use the 500 mL cup twice to measure 1L or you can use the 500 mL cup once, the 300 mL cup once, and then the 100mL twice to measure 1L.

Oh duh! I thought they were talking about that I had the liquid not the measure devices. Well I feel dumb. Thanks. I have been cleaning all day and stressing. My landlord is coming tomorrow. Thanks.

This. But should be 500 ml not 50 ml for part of the second use

500ml + 500ml = 1L

500ml + 300ml + 100ml + 100ml = 1L
