Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So first find how many mL (or \(cm^3\)), then convert that to L, then convert that to quarts. The definition of density is \(\sf density=\dfrac{mass}{volume}\) you're given density and mass, so find the volume. (I would suggest you rearrange the formula first, then plug your numbers in).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the second step is incorrect, going from mL to L you divide by 1000 not by 0.001
