Question

# The capacity of a cup is 300 ml. The capacity of a jug is twice that of a cup. What is the capacity of 3 cups and 3 jugs?

Hint:

### We simply find out the capacity of a jug and solve the problem using multiplication.

## The correct answer is: The capacity of 3 cups and 3 jugs is 2700 ml, i.e., 2.7 ltr

### Explanations:

Step 1 of 3:

The capacity of a cup is 300 ml.

The capacity of a jug is twice that of a cup, hence the capacity of a jug is ml.

Step 2 of 3:

The capacity of 3 jugs is

The capacity of 3 jugs is

Step 3 of 3:

The capacity of 3 cups and 3 jugs is 900+1800 = 2700 ml, i.e., 2.7 ltr (since 1 ltr = 1000 ml)

Final Answer:

The capacity of 3 cups and 3 jugs is 2700 ml, i.e., 2.7 ltr

### A certain colony of bacteria began with one cell, and the population doubled every 20 minutes. What was the population of the colony after 2 hours?

**Note:**

This is a logical question and doesn’t require any prior knowledge except the idea of multiplication. This could also be solved by simply making a table with an interval of 20 min and population which is multiplies by 2 in consecutive cells till we get 2 hours.

### In the x - y plane, the graph of line has slope 3 . Line k is parallel to line and contains the point ( 3, 10 ). Which of the following is an equation of line k ?

**Note:**

The general equation of a line is Ax + By = c. This form is modified to give us many other forms of equation of a line which involve the use of slope, x intercept, y intercept, etc. The student needs to be familiar with all these forms of equation of a line.
