  1. Yaameen buys 3 litres of cola
    1 litre of cola is £1
    3 litre of cola is£3
    and sells 100 ml for 25 pence then at the end of the day she gets £ 2.50 from one litre.
    100ml=25p
    1000ml=10 glass
    10×25p=

  2. money paid = 3 bottles x £1 per bottle = £3.
    Total amount of cola = 3 x 1L = 3L = 3000 ml
    1 glass of cola = 100 ml
    total number of glasses = 3000 ml /100 ml = 30
    money earned = 25p x 30 glasses = 750p = £7.5
    profit =money earned – money paid = £7.5 -£3 = £4.5

    **************
    5 Cans cost = 48p x 5 = 240p = £2.4
    3 Bottles cost = £1.59 x 3 = £4.77
    Cola cost = £4.77 + £2.4 = £7.17

    Cola in cans = 330 ml x 5 = 1650 ml
    Cola in Bottles = 1.25 L x 3 = 3.57 L = 3750 ml
    All the cola = 3750 ml + 1650 ml = 5400 ml

    1 glass of cola = 100 ml
    total number of glasses = 5400 ml /100 ml = 54

    money earned = 25p x 54 glasses = 1350p = £13.50

    profit =money earned – money paid = £13.50 -£7.17 = £6.33

  3. Yasmin buys 3 bottle of cola 3×1=£3
    She sells the cola in glasses 100 ml = 25p
    1 litre cola= 10 glasses cola because 10×100=1000ml
    10×25=250p
    250×3=750p = £7.50
    £7.50 – £3=£4.50
    She does profit £4.50

  4. -Yasim buy 3 bottles of cola costing £1 each, so she spent £3 in total.
    -She sells a cup of cola for 25p (100ml in cup and 1000ml in a litre) , 10 cups x 25p = £2.50 per bottle, 3 x £2.50 = £7.50.
    – she makes £4.50 profit.

    -The can cost 48p x 5 bought = £2.40
    -The bottles cost £1.59 x 3 bought = £4.17 *
    Add together = £ 7.17

    -can 330ml x 5 = 1650ml
    -bottles 1.25 x 3 = 3750ml
    Add together = 5400ml

    So 1000ml = £2.50 x 5 (5000ml) = £12.50
    And 400ml at 25p x 4 = £1.00

    So she spend £7.17
    Sold £13.50
    Profit = £6.33.

    The profit makes four pound fifty.

  6. Yasmin buys 3 bottle of cola 3×1=£3
    She sells the cola in glasses 100 ml = 25p
    1 litre cola= 10 glasses cola because 10×100=1000ml
    10×25=250p
