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)

    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
