## anonymous 3 years ago Can someone help me Please? At a certain factory, products are made in vats that have the capacity to hold 99quarts. If each bottle of a product contains 9/95 quarts, how many bottles can be made from each vat? _______Bottles can be filled from a 99 quart vat?

Well, if one vat holds 99 quarts and each bottle of the product contains 9/95 quarts, this is an easier question than I think your making it. So lets say if each vat held 100 quarts and each product took 1 quart to make how many products could the factory make from one vat?

im confuse here

100 divide by 1 which is 100, Now the original problem should seem much simpler, right?

yeah but the original problem said the vats hold 99 quarts not 100 so just put the 99 in for the 100 and i think you've got it

99 divided by 9/95

$99 \times 95/9 = 1045$
