Can someone help me with this question .. The doctor tells the patient to cut back on coffee. The patient usually has four 8-oz cups of coffee per day. If the doctor told him to cut back by 25%, how many ounces of coffee can the patient have each day? (Enter whole number only)
what is 25% of 4 cups?
basically find 25% of how much he drinks daily subtract that amount from the total amount he drinks then convert it to oz
ok i got it 8oz X 4 = 32 oz Every 8oz = to 25% and four cups of 8oz coffee is = to 100%, so just subtract 32oz - 8oz =24 oz Answer is 24oz
ahh, thanks everyone for your help!
